[NTG-context] Vertical rules in multiple column mode

Hello,

the following code generates 3column pages:

---
\starttext
   \startcolumns[n=3,rule=on]
     \dorecurse{5}{\section{\recurselevel}\input knuth}
   \stopcolumns
\stoptext
---

You can see that the vertical bars on the page 1 don't reach the "real" bottom of the "text height", whilst they do on the next page.

It seems that the length (or "range") of the vertical bar is given by the height of the FIRST column.

It seems to me that the rule height should rather be given as (or related to):

1) MAXIMUM of height of all columns

2) or height of i-th rule as maximum of height of i- and (i+1)-th column (each two ADJACENT columns).

Is there a way how to effect this?

Best regards,

Lukas
