[NTG-context] font scaling in typescripts

This may be a bug, or I may be missing something... I have defined a  
typescript for my Adobe Garamond, and I want Courier as the monotype  
font accompanying it. Since Courier is a bit too big compared to  
Garamond, I want to scale it down, so I have this line in my  
typescript (yes, I have adapted my own Courier, I have given up on  
all the changes in names etc. in the latest teTeX releases):

   \definefontsynonym [Courier]             [texnansi-Courier sa  
0.9]  [encoding=texnansi]

This works almost perfectly; Courier is scaled exactly like I want  
it. There's one small problem: the first occurrence of monotype in  
the document will print "sa 0.9 at 12.0pt" just before the passage in  
monotype. This happens only once in the document, but it doesn't look  
very nice. Bug or feature?
