Given the following file that uses definecolumnset and
startcolumnset/stopcolumnset (largely from the wiki
<https://wiki.contextgarden.net/Command/definecolumnset>) for input:

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\setuppapersize[letter]
\definecolumnset[TwoColumns][n=2]
\startcolumnset [TwoColumns]
  \title{Test page}
  \framed
    [frame=off,
     bottomframe=on,
     width=\textwidth,
     frameoffset=1mm,
     foregroundstyle=small,
    ]{\copyright\ \date[][year] Donald E. Knuth}
  \input knuth
\stopcolumnset
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Why does context fail, producing an empty .log and .pdf, with the following
information to the terminal:
