Hello Steffen,

you should provide examples how you do things, otherwise we'd have to

Perhaps this thread helps?

I don't know references (never used them), but could this be due to
interaction? Put style=\tf in \setupinteraction. But this is just a
wild guess.

Sorry, no idea. Somebody else?

No, not the line numbers. It is a TeX concept called 'penalty' where
high positive numbers represents 'very bad'. The default in ConTeXt is
2000, which is pretty high. Maximum is 10000 (= infinity). Perhaps you
need to play with \brokenpenalty as well, which tells TeX how bad it
is to break a page at a line with a hyphen.

But perhaps you could provide an example.
