[NTG-context] Bug in startalign

I (presumably) found a bug in the recent math changes of the latest
upload. If a cell of the startalign environment is empty, something
internally to the macro seems to be breaking.

Minimal example:


    \NC   \NC a \NR
    \NC b \NC c \NR

Filling the empty cell with e.g. "d" makes it work. Using "\strut" or
"\quad" or similar also leads to the same error.
