Thank you Henri, that works, and I can live with adding \blank[-line]
in these cases.

I still wonder if there is an automatic way, since it seems to only
happen when one has the inner itemize in columns. For example, with

\starttext
\startitemize[n]
\item
\startitemize[a]
\startitem First \stopitem
\startitem Second \stopitem
\startitem Third \stopitem
\startitem Fourth \stopitem
\stopitemize
\item On the outer level
\stopitemize
\stoptext

there is no extra line (result is attached).
