Yeah, the version from my ConTeXt Minimals does not crash either.
To reproduce the crash: download the source tarball from superlec.fr,
build it and replace the mpost executable in the TeX Live 2009
distribution. This is what I have done. Of course, I am missing
TEX is set to etex in texmf.cnf, but MPXCOMMAND does not occur anywhere.
This is the output:
This is MetaPost, version 1.502 (kpathsea version 6.0.0)
Preloading the plain mem file, version 1.004)) (./bug.mp
Anyway, I can revert to mpost 1.211 in TeX Live and use 1.502 from
ConTeXt Minimals, so this problem is not so serious for me.
