[dev-context] ugly bug in sometxt

Hello Hans,

I don't understand how I managed not to spot this before since I use
it frequently, but \sometxt seems to scale the labels according to the
last defined label. In other words, if one defines one \sometxt{short}
in the first graphic and one \sometxt{\dorecurse{10}{very }long} then
the first text will be scaled to the length of the second one.
