[NTG-context] TeX capacity exceeded.... but....

I'd like to understand what is happening in this particular instance:

While playing with a suggestion to a recent request (re 
\currentlistentrynumber etc.) I suddenly got a compiling error:

TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [file=2000].

I returned everything to how it was before I was trying out those 
suggestions, but still got the error, so I began the \stopdocument 
routine fairly early in the document... same problem still. Then I 
brought the \stopdocument well forward, immediately after the standard 
makeup pages and the document compiled. When I removed \stopdocument, 
the entire document compiled as it should.

So the basic question is: what can be causing the error message? This 
has happened to me on two occasions with this document - it occurred 
once before I had even begun experimenting with the \currentlistentry 
options, so I do not think that the problem lies there. And when it 
occurred that time, I again solved it with \stopdocument routine, but 
further into the document. And similarly, once it compiled that far and 
I removed it, the whole document compiled once more.

If it is too complicated an explanation for an email response, maybe 
just point me to a document that explains the issue.
