Hi Peter,

I had noticed such strange page breaks before and since it was always in small documents (maths problem sheets), I used an elementary workaround which consists in adding a \medskip or \smallskip before every \section. Actually analogous bad page breaks happen in Plain TeX with \beginsection.
Regarding the minimal example you sent, adding 
\setuphead[section][before=\smallskip]
to the top of your document, solves the problem appearing in the first section. I don't know whether this solves all other strange page breaks or not.

Best regards: OK
