[NTG-context] xtable First row missing in document

When I remove the split from the xtable the file is compiling anymore. 

See attached MWE.


I narrowed the problem down to the command "\setupinteraction[state=start]".
Without it, there is no error shown.


Error Log:       I have no idea what the error message means.

Hi all,


I think I found another bug in xtable (or placetable). 


The last table in the MWE is not showing the first row (the header row).

Remove the split setting (\startxtable[split=yes]) from the tables because
the "split" keyword
(\placetable[split]) from the float is enough to beak your tables across

What happens with \startxtable[split=yes] is that ConTeXt changes the number
of lines
it reserves on the current page before the break which isn't enough to fit
the first line
of the table together with the caption and the header.
