[NTG-context] Mixed Normal and Bold Math -- Problem with Lucida

Hi all,

I use lucida for a document and now I need some bold math fonts so I
have followed the instructions given in "This Way - Mixed Normal and
Bold Math". The resulting test file is:

\usetypescript[lucida] [texnansi]
\usetypescript[lucidabfm] [texnansi]
\startformula[lucida] 1 \Gamma \alpha x \stopformula
\startformula[lucida] 1 \Gamma {\bfm \alpha x} \stopformula
\startformula[lucidaboldmath] 1 \Gamma \alpha x \stopformula
\startformula[lucidaboldmath] 1 \Gamma {\bfm \alpha x} \stopformula

I have installed lucida with texfont and added some .tfm (lucida.zip
from Hans). Since I'm on debian, I've done some modifications to
/etc/updmap.d/10tetex-base (I use tetex + latest ConTeXt in ~/texmf) +
sudo update-updmap + sudo updmap-sys...
\loadmapfile[texnansi-bh-lucida.map] is in my cont-sys.tex

texexec gives:

LucidaNewMath-Demibold.tfm ???

I really don't now where is the problem (maybe I'm too tired or I'm
completelly dumb...)

Commenting out \setupformulas[method=bold] gives a resulting pdf with
LucidaNewMath-Demibold embedded-Subsetted. Only the last two lines
contains bold symbols. The \bfm command has no effect on \alpha x (the
second line). I assume that font-bfm.tex is loaded since there is no
complains about \bfm def. type-exa is loaded (and consequently bfmath

At first, I believe that there is a problem with my debian map files or
my lucida installation but it doesn't seems so after checking... Any idea ?
