That allows the compilation to complete, but method=three breaks other 
stuff. Try this:

    \starttext
    \setupdirections [bidi=on,method=three]
    \rightaligned{(( How is this?}
    \stoptext

(I also see problems with boxes set in the margin where before they were 
set centered in the textblock, but cannot construct an example yet.)
