[NTG-context] New Section Causes the Previous Page to Break Differently

Hi All,

I can create a document with text that ends at the bottom of a page.
Like so (also attached as tadtest2a.tex):

============================================================
\showframe

\starttext

\section{section 1}

\input bryson\par\blank
\input davis\par\blank
\input linden\par\blank
\input weisman\par
\input linden

This should be a the top of page 2.

\stoptext
============================================================

(I hope the vertical spacing works out the same on your machine as it
does on mine.  I'm using the latest minimals, 2010.01.25 11:09.)

But if I happen to start a new section after that text, then part of
the last paragraph from the first page gets pushed to the second page,
leaving the text on page 1 short.

Here is an example (also attached as tadtest2b.tex):

============================================================
\showframe

\starttext

\section{section 1}

\input bryson\par\blank
\input davis\par\blank
\input linden\par\blank
\input weisman\par
\input linden

\section{section 2}

This should be the first sentence of page 2, but it's not.

\stoptext
============================================================

This also happens for itemized lists.  First the full page version
(also attached as tadtest2c.tex):

============================================================
\showframe

\starttext

\section{section 1}

\startitemize[n]
\item \input bryson
\item \input davis
\item \input dawkins
\item \input weisman
\stopitemize

This should be a the top of page 2.

\stoptext
============================================================

Now the "spill-over" version (also attached as tadtest2d.tex):

============================================================
\showframe

\starttext

\section{section 1}

\startitemize[n]
\item \input bryson
\item \input davis
\item \input dawkins
\item \input weisman
\stopitemize

\section{section 2}

This should be the first sentence of page 2, but it's not.

\stoptext
============================================================

If this is the expected behavior, is there any way to disable it?

Thanks,
Tad
