Dear gang,

I am currently writing an article (mkiv) with lots of bibliographical  
references. But t-bib.tex seems to have disappeared, and the following  
simple file fails:


\author[]{Syed Nomanul}[S.]{}{Haq}
\title{Names, Natures, and Things}


C:/ConTeXt/tex/texmf-context/tex/context/base/publ-usr.lua:95: attempt to  
call field 'markasupdated' (a nil value)
stack traceback:
	C:/ConTeXt/tex/texmf-context/tex/context/base/publ-usr.lua:95: in  
function 'addbtxentry'
	[\directlua]:1: in main chunk

  4     \startpublication[k=haq,
  5                       t=book,
  6                       a=Haq,
  7                       y=1994,
  8                       s=Haq94]
  9     \author[]{Syed Nomanul}[S.]{}{Haq}
10     \title{Names, Natures, and Things}
11     \pubname{Kluwer}
12     \city{Dordrecht}
13     \pubyear{1994}
14 >>  \stoppublication
16     \cite[haq]
18     \stoptext

Now my understanding is that the new biblio system does not use bbl files  
yet. But I stopped using .bib files the moment Taco released the original  
bibliography module. Biblio databases are all in .bbl format.

I also set up an extensive bib environment (attached) to take care of all  
sorts of things.

If this is broken, can it be fixed asap? Please don't make me have to  
convert bbl to bib; that will be beyond depressing. Also don't want to  
lose my environment commands.

This is urgent because there is only a short time to finish this article,  
and I really want to spend more time writing the content than debugging  
Context! :-) :-) :-)
