Hi Rob,

there is a minimal sample:

    \setupinteraction[state=start, focus=standard]
        \input zapf
        \input zapf
        \input zapf
        \input zapf}

It doesn’t show what you meant, the link destination is not on the
heading itself, but on the next paragraph.

I think this should be improved. And I guess it goes unnoticed, because
after clicking on a link, the browser fits view to page.

All you can do is to copy your file to a temporary version and start
commenting commands from the preamble in that temporary version.

This is trial and error. Remove individual commands from preamble,
compile the document and check the error.

When the error dissapeared, you have probably found its cause. If you
report it to the mailing list, people will tell whether it is a bug or
your code needs improvements.

Don’t do any other changes to that temporary file. After the bug
hunting, you should delete that file.

Sorry, but (I’m afraid) this is the best way I know to hunt undefined bugs.

I hope it helps,
