[NTG-context] Page overflow just before Split TABLE

Hello (Hans especially ;0),

I made split TABLEs work with the following patch from Hans below.
Got it to work beautifully, but there's a major problem: the page just
before the split table 'overflows' on the bottom (see
http://www.idyll.org:8081/JohSite/context/page-overflow-preceeding-a-split-table).

Any hints on how to remedy this are greatly appreciated ...
