This is a result of the fact that -- is a ligature; a next version of pdftex 
will provide a feature to deal with this (a few days a go i played with it and 
extended context to support it)

hm, i need to complete unic-032.tex -)

attached is a quick patch, put this in tex/context/base (kpsewhich unic-032.tex) 
  and regenerate the format (vectors are preloaded)

Is this zerowidthspace supposed to break?

all that stuff will be added, the underlying engine can do all that trickery
