[NTG-context] Bug in lmtx or wrong setup?

Hi all,

I encountered a very strange problem.

I want to have section headlines expanding the whole textarea, but the
following copy text of the section shall be typeset in columns.

I have this setup and it works fine.


Except for one big problem. ConTeXt (current lmtx from 2020.05.18 16:50)
sometimes has problems to make a page break. And I get the weird result
shown on the attached screenshot.

After the page break the text of the section does not continue. Instead
a number is shown. In the log file I can't find something suspicious.

When I compile the source with current context (2020.01.30 14:13) I get
something like an infinite loop. ConTeXt hangs and has to be killed with
kill pid, Ctrl-C in terminal does not work

So, in my opinion my layout or setup causes a bad situation, where
ConTeXt does not know where to make a page break. While context hangs
and warns me, lmtx runs smoothly but places a number in the text, which
is bad as I might overlook it.

I tried to make mwe but I cannot reproduce the error.

Any ideas to improve my setup? Is this a bug or the intended behaviour?
