I had the same problem when I used my own version of an eplain 
indexing macro instead of the standard one used in Context. Extra 
space was spotted by the customer which was emabarassing. My solution 
was to revert to the less-powerful Context version.  The extra space 
disappeared but so did the "see also" etc. 

I'll remember the % trick.
