Is MkIV a option for you? The problem had been there for a while as well but 
now it’s fixed
you can decide what ConTeXt should do after the first page.

With the “state” you can control whether the layout at the second page should 
be switched
back to the global layout with \definelayout[…][state=start] (this is the 
default setting) or
it should remain with \definelayout[…][state=repeat].

You have to set only what’s different from the global layout.
