bypassed the problem in this way $(- $(context-length) 1)

And one more question: is it possible to use the context-length instead of a timeout as the context closure value?

In your original email, your config indicated that you were using `timeout(15)` in the grouping-by config.
As far as I understand the grouping-by parser, this means that the context will only be closed (and thus context-len reinitialized) if no message matches the condition for 15 seconds.
