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

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.
