To avoid the line breaks in the reference context has to redefined the meaning of \crlf and \\ when
the reference content is shown in the text which happens at the moment only for the \about command.

\setupreferencing[left=,right=]

\starttext
\startsection[reference={sec:one},
title={Three\\line\\title}]
\startparagraph
