[NTG-context] problems with images, layers and crop marks

Hi all,
I’m quite quiet at the moment, because I can access my mailing list  
address only via inconvenient webmail; since I updated MacOS, neither  
Apple Mail nor Thunderbird will take my password anymore... :-((
Besides, I’m currently well paid for working with LaTeX, and my other  
projects get less time.

Anyway, one of our authors finally submitted her final corrections,  
and "of course" my ConTeXt setup that still worked well in May doesn’t  
behave any more:

* stacked layers won’t work on the first page (there should be a title  
bar above an image; it works on the back cover, but not on the front;  
but I can enable one of both layers)

That might be related to:

* on some right pages, including p.1 (cover), crop marks are shifted  
one page width to the right.

* on some pages, crop marks are shifted vertically; might be related  
to using \offset for image placement.

I’m trying to cook up MWEs, but the behaviour is so strange and  
irregular, that I don’t know if I can reproduce it in a simpler  
environment... I suspect my combined use of postponing, makeups,  
layers and \offset might have grown side effects since May.

Any ideas?
