[OS X TeX] metapost + context

Greetings- sorry to folks on both the ConTeXt and OS X TeX list for the 

Recently, I did a nice clean install of teTeX via the i-Installer 
mechanism. Now, I'm trying to build one of my presentations via 
ConTeXt's presentation mechanism. ConTeXt generates the metapost files 
just fine. I can get them to metapost by doing mpost -mem=metafun xxx.mp

However, when TeX shop / texexec tries to metapost them mpost crashes w/ 
an address violation (I have crash logging on in Console.app)

This is strange, it will metapost fine manually, but not from within 
tetex. I checked the shell_escape variable in texmf.cfg (there are two, 
one in web2c and another in the highest level), set them to 't' (both to 
be sure).

Anyone with any ideas here?
