And I guess my usual redefinition of \dots as
\def\dots{\thinspace.\thinspace.\thinspace.\thinspace}
stems from one of that discussions.

My problem is not with \dots, but with \index within a header command
like this:

\def\TitelFrame#1{\index{#1}%
\framed[
width=\textwidth,
height=7.5mm,
frame=off,
align={right,high}]%
{\hw\tfa #1}%
}

I can't tell if it's an expansion problem, but that's probable,
because a single \index{foo} works.

Here's a rather minimal working example that shows the index problem
(even if not the failure with my actual project):

\starttext

\def\MyTitle#1{{\index{#1}\bfa #1}}

\chapter{Lalala}
\input tufte

\chapter{Bingo}
\input tufte

\input tufte

\completeindex

\stoptext
