I'm sorry for the bad news but without a patch for the font (which can 
probably applied with a goodies file) there is nothing which can be 
done. As the Type 1 version of the Lucida fonts had a few problems in 
the last few years with ConTeXt MkIV I don't think Hans has much 
interest to fix them again (especially when you can expect new problems 
in the future).

The best way here is to use another font or spend the money for the 
OpenType version.
