I was advised to report the bug back to this list, with an even more
minimized example.
Here it is below.
This bug occurs in both mkiv and mkii, in the latest versions (current
beta).

|\setupinterlinespace[line=12pt]

\definecolumnset[columnset1][n=2]
\setupcolumnset[columnset1][distance=5mm,balance=yes]

\starttext

\section{Introduction}
\startcolumnset[columnset1]
\dorecurse {7} { \input knuth }
\stopcolumnset

\section{Bibliography}
\setupinterlinespace[line=9.3pt]
\startcolumnset[columnset1]
\dorecurse {10} { \input knuth }
\stopcolumnset

\stoptext

Note the gap across both columns on p. 3, about 3/4 of the way down.
Any suggestions for a workaround would be appreciated.



Just wondering ... do you think that the first pages look ok? You mess with the interlinespace in a way that will make the outcome never look okay. Also, columnsets assume that the interlinespace is sane.

\setbox0\hbox{Tg}\the\htdp0,\the\baselineskip

gives

10.59601pt,9.3pt


so, any line that has a character with ascender and descender will enforce a larger than 9.3pt distance + lineskip and mess up any prediction cq. heuristics
