Hi Gerben,

I puzzeled with your project code.
First you  are not allowed to use \starttext \stoptext in a definition.
Your definitione interferes with the chapter mechnism. So more knowledge 
is necessary which I do not have at the moment.
in the "before" option you say \page=right, seems to create a problem.
If you want to start a page with blank lines you nee to insert a \strut

Please see the attached file
