I believe that is the exact same problem I have and that I described a
few days ago in my email with subject "Missing letters and numbers in
printout".  I have some grids on my document, which gets printed out,
but nothing else does.

Same here.

Same here.

I was told that this is the default now, that isn't going to change, and
that I could always use LuaTeX instead.  I could also use LaTeX, I
guess, but I'd rather keep using ConTeXt at least while my old 32 bits
OpenBSD installation works.
