[NTG-context] PDF bounding box problem?

Hi all,

I have problem with paragraph background in columnset environment:




Using the background in left column (as the text flows) causes shifting
whole column down }(including both text and properly placed background).

Sorry, I have no minimal example now, as the source is XML. But the mapping
macros lead into the code described above.

Are there some problems with backs in columnsets?

Thank you,

it's a rather new option, because pdftex only supports it in later versions


ps. be aware of the fact that sometimes those boxes are wrong; has to do
illustrator defaults and such (there is a technote on that on our site)
