[NTG-context] error in seeindex sorting

The MWE

\index{sample}
\index{fun+games}\index{fun+stuff}
\index{fun}

\seeindex{fun}{sample} % with first subheading, not heading
\seeindex{fun}{blah} % shown with heading (as it should be) ONLY if
\index{fun} is commented out; otherwise it is not shown
\seeindex{fun}{humbug} % not shown
\seeindex{fun}{bug} % not shown

\seeindex{fun+games}{entertainment}      % not shown

\placeindex[n=1]

shows several problems in \seeindex.

What is needed is

fun   1 *see blah, bug, humbug, and sample*
    games 1 *see entertainment*
    stuff    1

As Hraban has indicated, there is some urgency here. For my part, I need
x-refs for a book that I am trying to get off my plate and onto the
publisher’s; so any thoughts on this or suggestions will be greatly
appreciated.

Alan
