What have changed in mptopdf lately?

If I run

mptopdf file.mp

mptopdf not only leaves file without extension (same contents as 
file.mp), but it also changes file.mp!

Try this
cp file.mp copy.mp
mptopdf file.mp
diff file.mp copy.mp

This is quite anoying when working with emacs, because it complains that 
file.mp changed on disk

I find mptopdf to be very useful, but what is this behaviour good for?

Tested on the latest TL on Linux.

Test file if needed
