[NTG-context] Splitting natural table fails with xtable in footer

In the following minimal example, an error occurs when build the file 
(with a recent context version):


       \startxcell Filename: \stopxcell
       \startxcell[distance=1cm] \outputfilename.pdf \stopxcell


       \bTR \bTD Col1 \eTD \bTD Col2 \eTD \eTR
       \dorecurse{50}{\bTR \bTD Value1 \eTD \bTD Value2 \eTD \eTR}


The error is as follows:

This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.80.0 (TeX Live 2015) (rev 5238)
ConTeXt  ver: 2015.09.13 13:31 MKIV beta  fmt: 2015.10.1  int: 
tex error       > tex error on line 25 in file 
/Users/aese/Temp/ctx/split.tex: ! You can't use `\prevdepth' in 
restricted horizontal mode
tex error       > tex error on line 25 in file 
/Users/aese/Temp/ctx/split.tex: ! Illegal unit of measure (pt inserted)

In reality my footer is lot more complex (huge table :-)) and I see no 
better way to handle this.

Is there a way to fix this situation? (Preferable without rolling out a 
new ConTeXt version?)

Best regards,
