[dev-context] write18, XeTeX and metapost not running

Hello Hans,

one weird question: after the question has been posted to the mailing
list, I tried to run

draw fullcircle scaled 3cm;

on the garden. That works OK with pdfTeX, but doesn't work with XeTeX.

I have checked that locally on my machine. I did the following:
- I have set shell_escape = f in texmf.cnf
- I comment out the two lines in cont-sys.tex:
    % \runMPgraphicstrue
    % \runMPTEXgraphicstrue

"texexec bla" now creates bla-mpgraph.1, while "texexec --xtx bla" doesn't.

Any clue?

Thanks a lot,
