synctex still doesn't work: either as an argument to the call for 
typesetting or at the top of the document. (TeXworks v0.1r424)

But, as ConTeXt is doing multiples passes, is the option to use it as 
argument working. It should be called at least by the last typesetting!!

As synctex is a very useful tool, working with Context could become very 
painful if it doesn't work.
