that one gav eme a headache; i finally figured out that it's due to the fact 
that positions are not yet loaded (so, if you move \starttext to the top of your 
file, things would have worked ok)

here is a patch for page-lyr.tex:

   {\checkpositions % added
    \edef\MPlayerwidth {\MPw{#2}}%

alternatively you can add \checkpositions tothe top of your file
