Probably the best advice for any Linux ConTeXt user out there is: immediately
de-install your distribution-supplied tetex, and get a fresh tetex-beta or 
TeXLive. Asking Hans to tell you *exactly* which build of pdftex he uses
today is probably pointless, and I really doubt he has a 'clean' install
that resembles a tetex or TL. But perhaps it makes sense to include the 
versions that are current on http://live.contextgarden.net ?
