[NTG-context] balancing columns

Hi Hans,

I have the following sample:

    \mainlanguage[la]
    \definefontfamily [mainface] [serif] [TeX Gyre Pagella]
    \setupbodyfont[mainface, 7.8pt]
    \setupnotes[compress=yes]
    \setupnotations[alternative=serried]
    \definelinenote[aNote]
    \definelinenote[bNote][n=2]
    \definelinenote[cNote][n=3]
    \definelinenote[dNote][paragraph=yes]
    \def\ANote#1#2{#1\aNote{#1] #2}}
    \def\BNote#1#2{#1\bNote{#1] #2}}
    \def\CNote#1#2{#1\cNote{#1] #2}}
    \def\DNote#1#2{#1\dNote{#1] #2}}
    \starttext

    \dorecurse{50}{\startcolumns[n=2, balance=yes]

    \color[red]{%
    Aequivoca dicuntur quorum nomen solum commune est, secundum nomen
    vero substantiae ratio diversa, ut animal homo et quod pingitur.
    Horum enim solum nomen commune est, secundum nomen vero substantiae
    ratio diversa; si enim quis assignet quid est utrique eorum quo
    sint animalia, propriam assignabit utriusque rationem.}

    \column

    \startlinenumbering[continue]
    Aequivoca dicuntur quorum \CNote{nomen}{première note} solum
    commune est, secundum nomen vero \ANote{substantiae}{seconde note}
    \ANote{ratio}{seconde note} diversa, ut animal
    \DNote{homo}{troisième note} et quod pingitur. Horum enim solum
    nomen commune est, secundum nomen vero substantiae ratio diversa;
    si enim quis assignet quid est utrique eorum quo sint animalia,
    propriam assignabit utriusque rationem.
    \stoplinenumbering

    \stopcolumns}
    \stoptext

I must be missing something, since columns aren’t balanced on pages 1,
4, 5, 7 and 8. The text for both columns is the same paragraph. Isn’t it
a bug?

BTW, is there any way to force that the text before or after a \column
command remains always on the same column?

Many thanks for your help,


Pablo
