[NTG-context] Change of nuts.dimensions function ?

Hi Hans,
Thanks a lot, the function nuts.dimensions seems to work again as before.

Another issue I am seeing now is that for some reason the dir nodes push/pop are unbalanced. If I understand the logic of these whatsit nodes they behave like a stack to control the text direction, so I’d assume the number of push nodes and pop nodes is balanced. Currently I see 2 pop for 1 push in shipouts callback (but balanced pop/push nodes in processors callback). If that’s expected from now on I’ll change the logic in my handler.

Simple MWE that reproduces is attached.

Best regards

i'll check it but if you're on windows you're running the (currently 
very) experimental version which can actually be broken in some aspects 
(so you then need to update regularaly)
