[NTG-context] column-spanning floats

Hi all,

It used to be that in an example like the one attached where you were using
\startcolumns and used an \externalfigure that was wider than the column width, 
the figure would automatically be moved to the top of _both_ columns on the 
next page. 

That was a bit tricky sometimes, but worked fine. However, when I run with 
the current mkiv beta, the figure is simply overlapping the next column, and 
it does not auto-migrate. 

Also \startpostponing does not work here because it will indeed move to the
next page, but still only occupies the left column, thus overlapping any
text in the second column.

Is that functionality gone, or do I need to do something special?

Best wishes,

PS On top of that, the column balancing creates bad inter-paragraph spacing in 
the left column. No idea where that comes from! :(
