[NTG-context] yet another question about itemize

I'll take this chance to point out a long-standing problem/misunderstanding
that's causing me some grief:


It seems to me that the 'before' and 'after' keywords used in the third
argument of \setupitemize are operative only if 'columns' are also
specified.  In the example below, the hairlines disappear if the 'columns'
keyword is eliminated.  [columns, one] almost does it, but the indentation
is
not as expected.

Feature, bug, or misunderstanding?

BTW:   can the lengths of the two hairlines in this example be made to be
the same length?  What's causing the indentation of the first hairline?

Regards,
Gary
