[NTG-context] weird issue with xtable

Dear list,

in order to avoid a problem already reported
(https://mailman.ntg.nl/pipermail/dev-context/2020/003694.html), I added
to an indiviual table \startxtable[split=yes] (being the default in the
document \setupxtable[split=repeat, header=repeat]).

But I’m experiencing a weird issue with that approach.

I get the following error message (that breaks compilation) when I add

   You can't use '\prevdepth' in restricted horizontal mode

The single document (actually, an XML file) compiles just fine, but when
combined together to generate a PDF document over 1000 pages, I get the
error above.

My questions are: what is the restricted horizontal mode (as different
from the horizontal mode)? Why might it be triggered with
\startxtable[split=yes] in the huge source, but not in the single file?

Many thanks for your help,
