[NTG-context] lua-widow-control module error in LMTX

Now, I don't have any widows in my document, and I only count 2 broken 

However, I think this is at the expense of the shenanigans the module 
has "perpetrated" elsewhere, because, apart from the crazy horizontal 
spacing of some paragraph in the bibliography, the module lies to me in 
the log.

Yes, the log output fools me. There is no "Widow/Orphan NOT removed". 
But this is not true:

To the 2 broken hyphens must be added 4 orphan lines that the log claims 
to have resolved. But what worries me the most is that it counts as 
successful one occasion with an empty line, another occasion with two 
empty lines in a row, and 4 occasions with no less than 7 empty lines in 
a row at the beginning of a chapter.

I don't know if this information can provide any more clues to adjust 
the module for the grid mode, but I hope it helps.
