[dev-context] use of \phantombox doesn't match its definition

In trying to install the latest context on my system, I installed
texlive 2008, then the 2009.06.04 context, and rebuilt the formats.

Using texlive 2008 solved my problems with the Palatino fonts not being
found (compared to when I was using the latest context with texlive
2007).  However, the following file fails on my laptop, and on the live
Context (also 2009.06.04, texlive 2008):



\underbrace{\support Q}_{dx}


The error is:

! Use of \phantombox doesn't match its definition.
\lowest #1->\setbox \phantombox =
                                 \vbox {\vphantom {$\displaystyle {#1}$}}
l.8 \lowest{Q}

Changing all uses of \phantombox to \phantomboxff fixes the problem, so
maybe there's a name clash, but I couldn't find it in the context source
