[NTG-context] ConTeXt is looking for a non-existent .bbl file (Mac problem?)

Yesterday I tried to create a fresh PDF from a revised text using MkII and XeTeX (I have been using this combination for several months, because I need to use Indic fonts, which are not  -- yet? -- supported in MkIV). As a trick I defined an Indic font as a mono font (\tt), so that automatically the size would be adjusted correctly in footnotes etc.

To my horror, it no longer works. I stripped down my input file to one called kannada-test.tex, and still I got the bizarre error message "file kannada-test.bbl not found, waiting for bibtex", and texexec (or a process it invokes) freezes. I have never used bibtex input in these documents.

Below I am including the error log. I have changed nothing in the input files besides alterations in the text to be printed (not in any commands). The only thing that has changed is that in the meantime I installed the new version of MacTeX (2014; previously I was using 2013). I removed the entire MacTeX 2014 version and installed it afresh, but this did not help either.

It seems to be a Mac problem. Ubuntu (14.04) also looks for a bbl file, but simply passes over it if none is found (see attachment).

I would be very grateful for suggested solutions. I was using this to prepare materials for classes (fortunately we have a recess until April right now).
