It is not the iteration itself. Try with another pdf with more than 2 pages and you
will see that it happens in the first page(s).

The problem is that you are not giving ConTeXt a fair chance to update the page number,
because a series of \vbox to \paperheight {}’s cannot cleanly be broken into separate
pages. The solution is to use 

   {\vbox to \paperheight 
      		 \hbox to \hsize

where the extra \page command allows ConTeXt to properly process the page breaks.

Best wishes,
