You're right, mptopdf doesn't work with TeXLive, but it works well  
with gwTeX (I use gwTeX most of the time, so I didn't notice anything  
at first).

What is also strange is that the pdf version of the MetaPost figures  
are nevertheless flawlessly produced by mptopdf if I type "s" on the  
console screen (bypassing so the numerous error messages)...

I don't know what's happening...
