[NTG-context] Unwanted whitespace with \startsection and in-margin headings

Following up on a related whitespace problem with descriptions and 
tables following in-margin headings --

I notice that \startsection behaves differently from \section when it 
comes to following whitespace for in-margin headings. This example 
demonstrates this:

    \setuplayout [backspace=6cm,leftmargin=6cm,rightmargin=1cm,cutspace=1cm]

    \setuphead   [chapter][page=no]
    \setuphead   [section][distance=0pt,
                   alternative=text,
                   command=\MarginHead]

    \define[2]\MarginHead{\inmargin{#1 #2}}

    \starttext

    \chapter{Traditional}

    There is no extra white space when using the traditional
    sectioning commands when the heading is placed in the margin.

    \section{No blank line}
    This text follows the section heading with no intervening space.
    No extra space has been added.

    \section{Blank line}

    This text follows the section heading with one intervening blank
    line. No extra space has been added.

    \startchapter[title={Startsection}]

    The newer sectioning commands are sensitive to the whitespace which
    follows when the heading is placed in the margin.

    \startsection[title={No blank line}]
    This text follows the section heading with no intervening space.
    No extra space has been added.

    \stopsection
    \startsection[title={Blank line ?}]

    This text follows the section heading with one intervening blank
    line. It shows the problem with startsection.

    \stopsection
    \stopchapter
    \stoptext

What can be done with the header setup to prevent this?
