[NTG-context] buffers

The ConTeXt manual tells me on page 237:

	You can define your own buffer with:
	\definebuffer[...]
	... name
	After this command /getbuffer and \typebuffer are available where  
buffer is the name of the buffer.

I do:
	\definebuffer[left]
	\startbuffer[left]
	left\crlf
	\stopbuffer
	\typeleft
and it gives me the error:
	! Undefined control sequence.
\typeleft ->\dodotypebuffer
                             [left][def-3]
l.92 \typeleft

then I try:
	\typebuffer[left]

this gives a typeset message [file examdoc-def-2.tmp does not exist]
(file examdoc.tex being the containing tex file)

when I try
	\getbuffer[left] or \getleft
nothing at all seems to happen?

Why doesn't it work according to the manual?
Or do I misunderstand the manual completely?
