[NTG-context] wrong hyphenation in ancient Greek?

Dear list,

I have the following sample:

    \mainlanguage[agr]
    \setupbodyfont[dejavu]
    \starttext
    \startTEXpage[offset=2em]
    \hyphenatedword{πρᾶγμα πράγματος}
    \stopTEXpage
    \stoptext

that ouputs:

    πρᾶ-γμα πρά-γμα-τος

As far as I know, two consonants in ancient Greek aren’t hyphenated,
when they may begin a word.

Γν may be the beginning of word in Greek (such as γνῶσις), but even LSJ
has no word that begins with γμ.

Am I missing something or should this be improved in the hyphenation
patterns?

Many thanks for your help,

Pablo
