[NTG-context] Palatino Linotype under MKIV

I'm trying to use the full glyph range of the Palatino Linotype font shipped 
with XP (version 1.40; significantly different from the Windows 7 one) under 
MKIV. Everything works fine (oldstyle figures, sups for instance), except 
that the small cap "i" character has a dot whereas it shouldn't.

Here's a test file. The result, produced on WinXP / ConTeXt beta 2010-06-23, 
is attached.





{\sc \input knuth }

As far as I can see, it has to do with the messy name list of the glyphs. 
Both the normal small cap i and the small cap dotted i are named "i.sc", but 
the wrong one is picked when the smcp feature is activated. Moreover, the 
small cap glyphs have no unicode numbers in this font, so I cannot pick them 
manually with \char"XXXX or even with \charXXXXX.

Any ideas how I can get the right dottless i?
