[NTG-context] Unwanted white box above float

Hi all.

Have been experimenting with the many and varied options for placefloat to
try to resolve this problem with no success. As per minimal example below I
have nearly what I'm after - an image which floats to the right of a
background box with a 1em offset - but I can't get rid of the white box
which appears above it no matter what permutations I try.

(Secondary query: why do I have to set leftoffset=, rightoffset= etc.
individually for the text background? offset= seems to have no effect.)

Thanks for any help you can offer.


\definetextbackground[TintBoxedBackground]
        [background=color,
        backgroundcolor=cyan,
        frame=off,
        leftoffset=1em,
        rightoffset=1em,
        topoffset=1em,
        bottomoffset=1em,
        location=paragraph]

\definefloat[thematicimage][figure]
\setupfloat[thematicimage]
        [default=right,none},
        offset=1em,
        margin=0em,
        background=color,
        backgroundcolor=cyan,
        rightmargindistance=-1em]
