The above issue being solved, I guess there is something else in my setup not
being as it should be.
Because the code:

\starttext
\setupbodyfont[lucidaot]
{\sc abc}
\stoptext

Does give me abc in smallcaps, but placing the \setupbodyfont before the
\starttext surprisingly does not.

\setupbodyfont[lucidaot]
\starttext
{\sc abc}
\stoptext

Changing the lucidaot call for cambria or lmodern gives the expected coorect
behaviour.
So I guess there is something amiss with how I did setup the lucida font in my
system.
I bought the lucida opentype font and installed my TeX trees as follows. The
split between the ConTeXt directory and the one for my local files facilitates

~home\TeX\texmf\
fonts
opentype
bh
lucidaot
LucidaBlackletterOT.otf .. LucidaSansTypewriterOT.otf
tex
context
user (my own modules)

~home\Applications\TeX-programs\
context
tex

Strange thing furthermore is that changing the name of the lucidaot-directory
in the texmf-tree does not seem to make any difference, not in any case when I
execute "mtxrun --script font --reload --force" and afterwards "mtxrun --script
context --make".

So I guess there are some things I did not right. Can that be spotted from the
information given here?
