Dear Hans, dear Taco, dear all,

Minimal test files are:

----- test.tex ------
----- test.mp -------
  draw (0,0)--(1cm,1cm);
  label.lft("Test", (0,0));

The error didn't occur with the supp-pdf.tex from context 2007.09.28.

I checked the two supp-pdf.tex codes and there are quite a lot of
differences. Is this a know problem and how should it be fixed?

Thanks a lot, all the best, and merry christmas
