Update with a minimal working example.

If a layout is specified for the first page
(\definelayout[first][...=...], that specification is carried on
through all subsequent pages; the layout does not return to the
default specified with \setuplayout[...=...] on the second page.

If a layout is specified for a single later page
(\definelayout[3][...=...]), that specification is carried on too. In
the case of header/footer size, the body text overruns the footer area
on subsequent pages. In the case of backspace (text width), the first
paragraph on the page with the new layout is the default layout width
but the rest are OK. (I have seen this width issue mentioned before
and it may not be possible to change this behavior, but the
header/footer size is a problem for me.)

Thanks.
