This is a long-recognized issue that appears to have no resolution. It 
was previously raised by Gerhard Kugler in March 2007 (figure occupies 
space into next page 
<http://www.mail-archive.com/ntg-context%40ntg.nl/msg21273.html>) and by 
me in March 2014 (Caption whitespace overflows page 
<http://www.mail-archive.com/ntg-context%40ntg.nl/msg73904.html>) and 
possibly by others I did not come across.

The only resolution I have found is to reduce the size of the figure 
enough to prevent the reserved space from intruding on the text area of 
the next page.
