Hmm, it works here...

Author:         Peter Münster
Creator:        ConTeXt - 2007.08.07 17:52
Producer:       luaTeX-0.10.1

But why are you using \enableregime[utf]? I think that's redundant...

A curiosity: With \enableregime[utf] commented the file size is 2919  
bytes, with it uncommented it's 2918 bytes.

I wonder where the extra 1-byte savings with \enableregime[utf] is coming
