None that I know of, if anybody has a solution, I am
interested myself as well

\chardef\spacespertab=1 % \t will now become *two* spaces,
% default is 7, making 8 spaces

Looks like a bug, try this patch:

\def\doprocesstabskipline#1%
{\bgroup
\scratchcounter0 % TH: was \plusone
\dodoprocesstabskipline#1\relax
\egroup}

\setuptyping[option=commands] % enable commands

\starttyping
Here I would like to /BTEX \italic{some context-code} /ETEX
\stoptyping

From a bug in \startpacked. Sorry, I don't know how to fix
that without breaking other stuff.
