It is of-course not only about genereren. So I choose your second option. I
have included:
\setuplanguage[nl][
lefthyphenmin=5,
righthyphenmin=4,
]
\language[nl]

But I found something peculiar happening. I think it is a bug, but maybe I
am wrong. Where genereren first was hypenated, it now gets put completly put
at the end of the sentence. If that is possible now, why was it not possible
beforehand?
In another paragraph I am using gedocumenteerd. First it was gedo-
cumenteerd, now it is gedocu- menteerd.
What is happening here?
