Ok, but without \column, it should balance the columns if possible,  
My main problem at the moment (see above) are columns in "lines"  
mode, for lyrics.
It worked once, but it broke some betas (3 months?) before.

Luckily my songbook doesn't need to be complete until christmas (I  
planned so, but we don't get the reprint permissions in time).

I like to boast how great a tool TeX and especially ConTeXt are, but  
everytime I try to do some real work with it, I run into "unsolvable"  
problems (or unstable code) like this...
