Hi,

I am not a guru, but I think that you should setup your pagesize properly. For 
the calculation of the paper-width margin widths are not used. The elements for 
calculations are the backspace and makeupwidth and the rest to sum up to the 
paperwidth as given in the definition of the papersize. Margins are kind of 
virtual. If text spills out of the margin then the backspace and the margin 
have to be adjusted.

e.g. 
\setuplayout
    [location=middle,
     topspace=1.5cm,
     backspace=2cm,
     margin=18mm,
     width=middle]

Location=middle tells only, that the lettersized paper should placed centered 
onto the lettersized paper, oversized.

When I comment the line with insidesection= I get a consistent result i.e. that 
the text of the sections with start\stop in the text body starts one line to 
low compared to the traditional way of coding. 
Otherwise with this insidesection={\blank[-line]}  it appears, that the text 
next uneven section numbers is typeset at the expected place, where text next 
to even section numbers is not. — This might indeed be something which Hans 
should look at.


Best
