Pending Interrupts

Hello,
 
I had one basic question regarding the way pending interrupts are handled.
 
Assuming while performing RAM test I disable all interrupts. If any interrupt comes during this time, will it be stored as a pending interrupt?
 
I am seeing a behaviour where a interrupt that is occuring (or supposed to occur) when the interrupts are disabled, is being stored as a pending interrupt.
 
Is this behavior correct or am I seeing things?
 
I always thought interrupts are stored as pending, if
The interrupts are enabled
A interrupt occurs when a interrupt is being serviced.
