The issue reported in https://bugs.debian.org/480725 is nevertheless
still present and reproducible. When pasting the following content into
a file called input.mp and calling "mptopdf input.mp" no pdf file is
created, just the intermediate ps file.

This needs to be handled.

As you did not accept the patch, I remove the tag "patch" from our issue
for now.
