[NTG-context] --silent switch seems not to work.

The --silent parameter seems to have no effect. I still get
messages listing every  typescript in use on every pass: e.g.,
(/hdb1/usr/local/texlive/2005/texmf-dist/tex/context/base/type-exa.tex)
(/hdb1/usr/local/texlive/2005/texmf-dist/tex/context/base/type-syn.tex)
(/hdb1/usr/local/texlive/2005/texmf-dist/tex/context/base/type-enc.tex)
(/hdb1/usr/local/texlive/2005/texmf-dist/tex/context/base/type-siz.tex)
(/hdb1/usr/local/texlive/2005/texmf-dist/tex/context/base/type-map.tex)
(/hdb1/usr/local/texlive/2005/texmf-dist/tex/context/base/type-spe.tex)
(/hdb1/usr/local/texlive/2005/texmf-dist/tex/context/base/type-akb.tex)
(./type-charter.tex

The above is repeated about four times. 

All this trivia slows down the compile process significantly.

I am using texexec 5.4.3. I get warning messages telling me to
use texmfstart instead but since that script is not functional on my
machine I just use texexec. It seems to work OK except
for the --silent script. 

On Linux I can always say:
texexec book.tex >/dev/null

but this obscures error messages as well.
