Hi Gerhard,

I looked into your log file and it shows

  ConTeXt  ver: 2003.1.31  fmt: 2006.1.23  int: english  mes: english

It's an ancient ConTeXt version, you need to uprade your ConTeXt version
first to get a splittet table.

You should download the latest stable version from pragma.

If you want a repeated header on every page try to put
into your document.

With new versions from ConTeXt you do no longer the
   \starttables ... \stoptables

Hans changed it to control table splitting completely with split-option
in \setuptables and makes to let the normal  \starttable-environment
split when neccessary.

You should look at the wiki how to upgrade your TeX-distribution.
