How do you load the chapter file in your product file?

The error message above appears because ConTeXt can't find the chapter 
file of your document and uses one with the same name from a 
documentation of a LaTeX class which has the same name.

You need a reference to the environment file from within the component 
file, otherwise ConTeXt has no knowledge of the bib file.
