This can set an interviewee off their footing a bit, but in a good way. Ask questions that indicate your lack of understanding and really press for details in the explanation. As you do, does your job candidate seem to fight back frustration and impatience-in their facial expressions, body language, and tone of voice? Or do they ask more questions in order to gather information about what it is you don't get?

Are they able to explain the idea simply and rework their approach to clarifying things when it becomes clear you're still confused?
