[NTG-context] problem with publication lists in mkiv

OK, I'm replying to my own question to add one further detail: I have now found a minimal example that demonstrates the error with \writetolist: if you process the following file with mkiv, a spurious vertical space is added before the first line of text; everything works as expected in mkii. And the vertical space in the bibliography (shown in the example below) is still unsolved. So there definitely is a bug somewhere in mkiv. 

All best

\definelist[MyTopics][criterium=all]

\setuplist[MyTopics]
          [pagenumber=no]

\showframe

\starttext

\writetolist[MyTopics]{Word}{} Hello

\stoptext

I have prepared an example for publication lists: the following code produces the expected output in mkii. In mkiv, it adds vertical space for every item that is added to the bibliography. Maybe some unescaped line-endings somewhere in the code?
