Wait ... I have been reading in the wrong order: so it does work, only too slow?

Actually, being slow and those weird lines in log are "normal" for the
current imlementation - it's a price for flexibility over efficiency,
but being so inefficient that its flexibility is nearly "useless".

What happens if you:
- use the latest xetex (http://minimals.contextgarden.net/current/bin/xetex/)
- use the attached fixed file (it has been fixed a while ago, but Hans
hasn't released a new version yet)
- make sure that you have termes otf files
- only use

\setupbodyfont[times,10pt] \setupinterlinespace[line=12pt]
Wort und Tat in 1906
