I've modified the sample code you got from Wolfgang to include chapter headings 
and it all looks fine to me[1] - the red text is all on the right hand side and 
the greeen text is all on the left. If this doesn't help and you still have 
problems then you'll need to post a sample that actually shows the problem. I'm 
using ConTeXt  ver: 2023.09.04 19:15.


   \dorecurse{5}{\chapter{Stream One}
     \dorecurse{10}{\input knuth\par}

   \dorecurse{5}{\chapter{Stream Two}
     \dorecurse{10}{\input zapf\par}



    \setbox\scratchboxfour\vsplit\scratchboxone to \textheight
    \vbox to \vsize{\box\scratchboxfour\vss}%
    \setbox\scratchboxfive\vsplit\scratchboxtwo to \textheight
    \vbox to \vsize{\box\scratchboxfive\vss}%


[1] Apart from unnecessary blank pages at the beginning but that's a different 
problem so I'm not addressing that for now.
