[dev-context] bib: space gobbled after \cite

With recent versions of ConTeXt, spaces after \cite[Author:1977] are
getting eaten.  I'm pretty sure that did not happen with versions from a
while ago, but the archives suggest that it happened a long while ago:


The minimal test file:

\setupbibtex[database=statement, sort=author]


Polya said \cite[Polya:1966] in 1966: "finished mathematics consists
of proofs, but mathematics in the making consists of guesses."



The first line ends up "Polya said (Polya, 1966)in 1966..." with no
space after the close paren.  (This is with 2009.10.27 16:35 MKII on top
of TL 2009 from Debian.)

Here is statement.bib to complete the example:

  author =	 {George Polya},
  title =	 {Let us teach guessing},
  howpublished = {VHS},
  year =	 {1966},
  publisher =	 {Mathematical Association of America},

 glorify the hunters.'  --African Proverb
