When you set 'width=fit' or 'width=middle' context looks at the 
bottomspace value and if the bottomspace height is 0pt it assign to the 
bottomspace the height of the topspace. The only thing you can do it to 
assign a domension ti height, e.g. 'height=15cm'.

@Hans: How about a 'height=auto' key which calculates the textheight 
like 'height=middle' but doen't change the bottomspace value even if the 
value is 0pt?
