You can probably count on that, but it's a bit of a hack.

If the open oplock handler gets called first, it sends
the break request to the client then returns. At that point
your handler is guarenteed to run before the reply from the
client is received.

Problem is that's dependent on the current code. If you
rely on these semantics later changes may break that promise.
