Following up on my own note, I see that this fails under LMTX if compiled in a clean directory, but succeeds if first compiled with the troublesome line removed, and then, restoring the line, compiled a second time. It also works by placing a .tuc file from an older version of the document into the directory before compiling. Very strange indeed. The expected output, from one of those successful compilations:

So. I am clearly doing something wrong, but sometimes LMTX is letting me get away with it.

Hello list,

The following fails with ConTeXt  ver: 2021.10.24 21:45 MKIV but works with the companion LMTX. The error message is: tex error       > tex error on line 6 in file G:/TestConTeXt/convert.tex: ! Incompatible glue units , pointing to the second \convertnumber line.

 \ref[number][xx] ·
 \convertnumber{r}{1} ·

In this case I am trying to display with roman numerals the number generated in the label created through \definelabel.

Suggestions welcomed.
