What is a good way to place a short paragraph in the margin next to a figure in ConTeXt?

I've been trying the following code, but it places the \inmargin text at the base of the figure which only works for about 2 lines before the text goes well beneath the end of the figure.

{\placefigure[force][fig:figure-reference]{Figure Caption}
\inmargin{Sometext that is intended for the Margin}

enter image description here

I've had a quick look in the Details Manual but was unable to find or work out what to apply to get a good result.

I have completed your code snippet into a MWE and added the output. I hope that is OK. :-) – hpesoj626 Apr 11 '13 at 4:33
That is most definitely OK. Thank you very much. This demonstrates the issue clearly. – sien Apr 11 '13 at 5:04
You use a too old version. It was fixed before 2012-12-06. What version are you running? – Marco Apr 11 '13 at 14:51
It was an old version problem. Thanks Marco! – sien Apr 15 '13 at 7:59
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about an issue which is fixed in the current release version. – Joseph Wright Aug 12 '13 at 20:31
