Thank you for the report, we will try to fix it for the upcoming texlive
2019.

With texlive 2018 you can produce the pdf directly

%% test.mp
input metauml;
beginfig(-1);
  Begin.b;
  End.e;
  e.w = b.e + (15,0);
  drawObjects(b,e);
  clink(transition)(b, e);
endfig;
end

$> mtxrun --script metapost --metafun test.mp
