My channiodes male has held essentially the whole time I've owned him (about a month, he's spawned twice). However, after his last lot of fry he refused to have anything to do with the female until he had had about a week of recuperation.
I think if your male was starving he would just swallow the eggs. Most animals generally have a sense of self-preservation.
Congrats on the spawning though! I've found my channiodes eat their fry so you might want to remove the parents if you manage to get some.

By any chance, does anyone know what's going on with the yahoo group for IBC?

Luckily my bettas are greedy and have not yet picked up on that particular trick.
However, my female channiodes never bothered my male the whole time he was holding. However, he goes into serious 'dad holding' mood so chases her away if she gets too close. I left them in together and had no issues with him swallowing eggs. The only issue I had was them eating fry, but I didn't want any at that point in time, so didn't bother removing them.
