[NTG-context] context on 64 bit does not find environment files

Dear group,

my computer running Context changed to a 64-bit-machine. Since all
my local files (including a minimal Context installation) were
migrated, I tried to use this installation as usual. Even after
rearrangement of paths and setup scripts this did not work properly
since Context did not find environment files located upwards in the
directory tree. I therefore tried to install the linux-64 minimal
distribution according to the installation hints in the wiki. The
same behaviour occured: environmentfiles are not found except if
they are in the same directory like the context tex file. I was able
to reproduce this on a second 64-bit computer.

What can I do to solve the problem?
Thanks in advance,


An example log file  looks like (just the beginning until commands
defined in the environment occur):
