```Dear list members,

In the following minimal example the last block (on the background) is
placed on page 3 while there is ample room for it on page 2.
Only when the \page command in line 6 is uncommented, this block is
placed on page 2.
Is there a better way to force placement on page 2 or should I always
put a \page command at the bottom of the previous page?
My '\page solution' has the disadvantage that, when applied in the
middle of a sentence, the last line on the page is usually not aligned.

\define\block{\input knuth \blank}
\starttext
\block
\block
\block   % still on page 1
%\page
\block   % partially on page 2
\startbackground
\block   % only on page 2 if \page is uncommented
\stopbackground
\stoptext
