Wagner,

Thanks for pointing this out, it works:

\definelayout
  [1]
  [first page layout...]

\definelayout
  [2]
  [reset] % call for a reset when the second page is reached

\setuplayout
  [default layout...]

But the question of why \definelayout[first] does not work correctly
remains. Perhaps the developers will look into it.
