Up to now, unfortunately, I could not create a minimal example to show this behaviour, so I put the files in the folder here:

you have some interaction between textrules and backgrounds (and that
can be a matter of very small differences in dimensions and rounding and
such .. i just don't see a quick way out) ... esp these backgrounds are
an old mechanism (maybe i should alias it to textbackgrounds in lmtx)

much better is to use this:

\definetextbackground
[xx]
[location=paragraph]

\starttextbackground[xx]
\stoptextbackground

can you try to use that instead? less page overflow too

(actually i should iontegrate some title line in that)
