I replaced \VL with \DC and the dot disappears. There is still something wrong 
with \DL \DC \DR. Look very closely at the right edge of the attached table: 
There is a gap between 2 stacked vertical lines instead of one. If you 
exchange the commented line with the one below it disappears (I suspect that 
\VL overwrites the \DR). Interestingly, the gap appears to be the same size as 
the spurious dot-)

See also absolute page 42 of the ConTeXt excursion. In the typeset table, to 
the right of `Table', the same gap appears. (I have not tested your new code 
yet to see if this resolves that)

Thanks as always for your help!
