[NTG-context] how to stop pagenumbering

One more observation on the strangeness of \setuppagenumber.

Putting \setuppagenumber[number=4] before the call to \xmlprocessbuffer and putting \setuppagenumber[state=stop,number=8] inside the \startxmlsetups does make the pagenumber having the value 8. This proves two things:

(1) the \setuppagenumber in the \startxmlsetups is processed before the pagenumber is fixed and typeset

(2) the [state=stop] in the \startxmlsetups is wrongfully ignored, whereas at the same time [number=8] does get honored.

Imho this demonstrates there is an error in the processing of \setuppagenumber when located inside the \startxmlsetups. An error that does not occur when called at the \starttext document-level before the \xmlprocessbuffer.
Could it be a matter of locality?

More information on this. Statements:

<buffer definition for xml>
\usemodule[hvdm-dvd]
\starttext
\xmlprocessbuffer{dvd}{xmlbuffer}{}
\stoptext
\endinput

in the hvdm-dvd module \setuppagenumber[state=stop] is put inside

\startxmlsetups setup-name
    \setuppapersize[A5][A5]
    \setuppagenumber[state=stop]
   "typesetting operations following"
\stopxmlsetups
In this case pagenumber not suppressed.

However with the following order of statements the pagenumber does get suppressed.

\starttext
  \setuppagenumber[state=stop]
  \xmlprocessbuffer{dvd}{xmlbuffer}{}
\stoptext

In both cases the call to  \setuppagenumber comes before typesetting the page.
Why is the  \setuppagenumber inside the xmlsetup ignored?

The command  "\setuppagenumber[state=stop]"  used to stop numbering the pages, now it doesn't.
Has this been changed and did I miss that change?
