[NTG-context] bug in indentation

Dear knights,

There is apparently something wrong with the indenting mechanism in the latest 
context: I have to invoke indenting twice to cut it on (uncomment the second 
\setupindenting):

============================
% output=pdf interface=en

\setupwhitespace[none]
\setupindenting[medium,next] % does not indent
%\setupindenting[medium,next] % need both to indent

\definestartstop
  [quote]
  [before={\startnarrower[1*middle]\blank[big]},
    after={\stopnarrower\blank[big]}]

\starttext

\input knuth

\startquote
\input knuth
\stopquote

\input knuth

\stoptext
============================

log verifying version

=============================
This is pdfeTeX, Version 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2c 7.5.3) (format=cont-en 
2005.8.18)  18 AUG 2005 21:47

ConTeXt  ver: 2005.08.15  fmt: 2005.8.18  int: english  mes: english
=============================

Similarly, if I want a local exception to the indentation I need something 
like

\start\setupindenting[none]\setupindenting[none]

<paragraph>

\stop

Also, dropped capes does not work well when indentation is on, calling for the 
local exception above.

Finally, \indenting and \noindenting don't work like they used to: bug or 
feature?

I actually spent hours trying to debug a huge manuscript (with messed up now 
fixed indentation) before finally realizing and isolating the problem.

Upgrading ConTeXt is always an adventure...

Best
