Hi Herb,

You are right, there are some serious bugs in the latest ConTeXt beta 
distribution and they have been discussing it on the ConteXt list here: 
< [OS X TeX] Incidental report: ConTeXt i-Package update>. I looks like 
Hans accidentally zipped some internal files in the distribution but a 
new one should be out soon. If you need to fix yours fast, hit the 
archives for a few hack fixes.
