I have done that right now (problem definitely there) but then looked at  
the difference between my syntax
and yours. I used something like

\setupexternalfigures [directory={.}]
\setupcaption[width=.95\textwidth, location=bottom, numberstopper={:}]

An illustration of this process is given in Fig.~\in[fig:convosim].

changing the referencing to

An illustration of this process is given in Fig.~\at[fig:convosim].

i.e. replacing `\in' by `\at' resolves the issue. I'm rather new to  
context and was under the impression that `\in' is the
context equivalent of latex's \ref and was not aware of \at at all.
but this seems only partly true. can you give me a pointer where best to  
look up the
differences between `\in' and `\at'?

so it seems I need to use \at for referencing figures, at least when  
numberstopper is not empty? ok, so be it ....

and thanks a lot for responding and straightening this out.
