Maybe you and I are studying different earths, but it has always been my experience that executive bodies serving unfixed terms stay in office indefinitely (de jure, that is) until they choose to resign or are constitutionally removed. I know for a fact that that is the case in France, Russia, Italy, Japan, Canada, the U.K., Australia, and some others; and, as you said, it is done so that there is continuity between governments during post-election negotiations.
I know that I'm being pedantic, and I'll admit too that I have failed still to familiarize myself entirely with the OrgLaw of Talossa, but if the OrgLaw is like any other parliamentary system, then any member of the Government thereof (say, for example, the Attorney General / Avocat-Xheneral) stays in office indefinitely until otherwise removed. Which is to say that the Government does not dissolve at all; on the contrary, the same people could keep the same portfolios if too few MCs objected, and there is no constitutional requirement/obligation whatsoever for a cabinet reshuffle.
I don't know Talossa super well yet, but I do know other constitutions. Governments nowhere just dissolve; it'd be unstable. If anything, the Government resigns as a formality after the election but stays on as a caretaker until the head of state appoints a new prime minister (or equivalent). Ever heard of a President rejecting someone's resignation but holding onto it for later? Same idea... sorta.
In any case, if you want to resign, go for it. Who can compel you otherwise? I just personally find it poor precedent.
Edit: If you can show me some text where my understanding is wrong, then I'll stand gladly corrected. I just... governments don't dissolve. Even in the 1975 Australian crisis, even after the prime minister was dismissed and a double dissolution called, there were still ministers making sure that the whole operation wasn't imploding while the Gov-Gen called a new election and sought to name a new PM. :/
