[NTG-context] \autoinsertedspace fails

Happy New Year all!

Following up on the problem with \autoinsertnextspace 
(https://mailman.ntg.nl/pipermail/ntg-context/2022/107111.html) and the 
new \autoinsertedspace that came from that report, I see that there is 
still a problem, or perhaps a problem again after it was previously 

The following code, run under the latest (and recent previous) version, 
produces an incorrect result, with no space inserted where expected in 
many cases. As the first examples after \starttext show, the problem 
appears to be with \autoinsertedspace, but perhaps I am using it 
incorrectly in the macro as well.

    \starttexdefinition unexpanded BD

    \starttexdefinition doBD #1#2
        \removeunwantedspaces\ % insert a space
            {\red I NEED A DATE OR DATES!}
