Hi,

The above example works.
But if I try it with \blackdiamond, I get error and context stops:

This is the tex file:

% begin code
\starttext
This is \type{$\blackdiamond$} $\blackdiamond$

This is \type{$\diamond$} $\diamond$
\stoptext
% end code

And the compilation:

> context symbols.tex

How can fix this?
