Even if that were the case, that's a fragility that no program should
its users endure. It should probably have bailed with an error message
after seeing that the second argument was empty rather than taking down
the entire operating system with it.

But regardless, this does not seem to be the case. The following minimal
still blows up, even with an assignment in the second parameter.

\starttext

\startitemize[before=\startlinecorrection,after=
\stoplinecorrection][start=11]
\item foo
\stopitemize

\stoptext
