I also find it pointless. What I do in this case is that instead of showing my frustration, I ask calmly the question :

"I see. (Silence) Can we take a step back ? (Silence) (Yes, go on). What is your goal with this question ? What are you trying to achieve ?"

Then either a good answer comes or not. If they thought about it, I'm fine. If they didn't, they will remember it for next time and maybe do it differently :)
