Thanks Mojca, I downloaded your regime file; now I will not need write it

Hans, I would guess that more than 50% of Slavic Windows users (ie.
Slovenian, Croatian, Chech, Slovak, ...) use the cp1250 encoding
(including me). Would it be possible to add at least this file

This has probably nothing to do with the problem described here, but I
believe that many users would appreciate to have that "encoding"
(called regime in ConTeXt) available.

\enableregime[windows] is cp1252 (Western European Windows) not cp1250
(Central European Windows), --translate=cp1250cs is cp1250 (supposing
that you don't use \enableregime[windows], but the default one):
everything will be mixed up if you use both simultaneously.

If you download the file mentioned above (place it into the current
directory or somewhere in the TeX tree and refresh the filename
database) or if Hans adds it to the distribution, you can use
\input regi-cp1250

This probably won't solve your problem with missing spaces (didn't try
it), but you'll have the proper encoding.
