[NTG-context] currentreferencerealpage wrong (how to detect even/odd pages?)

Hi,

right now I use \currentreferencerealpage to detect if I'm on an even or odd page
(because my picture placement rules depend on it) like this:

\newcount\bildpage
\bildpage=1
% ...
\def\bild#1...{%
     {\global\bildpage=\realpageno}%
     \ifodd\bildpage \def\eo{o}\else \def\eo{e}\fi
     % ...
     \if o\eo odd...\else even...\fi
    \message{>> bildpage=\the\bildpage \space eo=\eo \space currentreferencerealpage=\currentreferencerealpage \space << }%
}

but now I notice that for some pages/pictures the value of \currentreferencerealpage
is not correct (only for the first picture on a new page?):-(

I'm writing some ">> ... <<" data to the log file:

pages           > flushing realpage 34, userpage 34
>> bildpage=35 eo=o currentreferencerealpage=35 <<
>> bildpage=35 eo=o currentreferencerealpage=35 <<
pages           > flushing realpage 35, userpage 35
>> bildpage=35 eo=o currentreferencerealpage=35 <<
>> bildpage=36 eo=e currentreferencerealpage=36 <<
pages           > flushing realpage 36, userpage 36
>> bildpage=37 eo=o currentreferencerealpage=0 <<  
>> bildpage=37 eo=o currentreferencerealpage=0 <<  
>> bildpage=37 eo=o currentreferencerealpage=0 <<  

typically after that "flushing realpage XX, userpage XX" messages (not from me;)
the currentreferencerealpage is set to the new page number.

but NOT for page 36:  here after "flushing realpage 35" 
it's still currentreferencerealpage=35 for the first picture on this page:-(


any idea how this can go wrong ?
what can I test, which debug info can  I provide ?
is there a possible 

the attached zip file contains a "minimal" example 
with only 2 pages and 4 images: on the 2nd page (#36)
the first image should bleed to the left like all other pictures...


so far this seems to happen 3 times according to the log file:

pages           > flushing realpage 10, userpage 10
>> bildpage=11 eo=o currentreferencerealpage=11 <<
>> bildpage=12 eo=e currentreferencerealpage=12 <<
pages           > flushing realpage 11, userpage 11


pages           > flushing realpage 14, userpage 14
>> bildpage=15 eo=o currentreferencerealpage=15 <<
>> bildpage=15 eo=o currentreferencerealpage=15 <<
>> bildpage=16 eo=e currentreferencerealpage=16 <<
pages           > flushing realpage 15, userpage 15



thanks for any help,

Harald
