I also don't see the problem with a newer installation.  In particular:

  Creator:        ConTeXt - 2009.06.04 22:20
  Producer:       pdfTeX-1.40.9
  (with texlive2008)

But I also noticed that the vertical spacing is different from what
ConTeXt 2008.10.31 produces (part of Debian texlive2007).  The vadjust
problem is very sensitive to the vertical spacing, so a change in
vertical spacing might be hiding the problem.

I'll use the newer ConTeXt/pdftex setup for the full math textbook (of
which lumping.tex is a chapter).  That should be a good test of whether
the vadjust problem is still there.

By the way, is it worth my tracking down the difference in the vertical
spacing?  Or is that an expected change between 2008.10.31 and
