Many thanks for your report, Ulrike.

This was the same problem that prevented the compilation of the
following code:

    \setupdirections[bidi=on, method=two]
    \input zapf

After your report, Hans fixed the issue (which I tried to report twice,
but the mailing list rejected my messages).

Many thanks for your report and for the fix from Hans,
