[NTG-context] XeTeX "hangs"

Hi Mojca,

Trying your minimal file on my Mac OS X, with XeConTeXt or with plain  
XeTeX, I observe the same hanging...

However, the following, taken out of an example sent to you by  
Jonathan K., works fine with both (indeed commenting out \starttext  
and \stoptext in plain XeTeX):

\font\lmec = ec-lmr10 at 36 pt

Testing... ð

Testing... ^^F0

\catcode`č=\active \defč{^^a3}
\catcode`š=\active \defš{^^b2}
\catcode`ž=\active \defž{^^ba}

Testing... čšž


while the following results in a PDF file with "Testing... ° 0"

\catcode`ð=\active \defð{^^F0}

Testing... ð


Needless to tell you that all this seems extremely obscure to me...

Best regards: OK
