Dear list,

here is a complete example that shows the problem:

\setuppapersize[A4][A4]

\setuplayout[
topspace=0.7cm,
backspace=0.7cm,
leftmargin=0cm,
rightmargindistance=0cm,
rightmargin=0cm,
footer=0cm,
width=fit,
height=fit,
]

\mainlanguage[sv]
\enableregime[utf]

\starttext
\startitemize[n][style=sans]
\item \input tufte
\item
\startitemize[a,packed][left={},right={)},stopper=,style=sans]
\item Det sökta
\item Bingospjäll
\stopitemize
\item \input tufte
\item \input tufte
\item \input tufte
\item \input tufte
\item \input tufte
\item \input tufte
Brynja
\stopitemize

\stoptext

In this example the a) is pushed a bit up instead of down, but I guess
the reason is the same.

Best regards, Mikael
