[NTG-context] followup metapost textext?

Followup to my previous post (see below)

I executed the code on the "live tex site" and, mirabile dictu, there  
it works.
The difference I can see is a much older pdfetex (Version  
3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4)) on the live site, whereas I have a  
newer one (Version 3.141592-1.30.4-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.5)).

Could that be the problem or must I dig deeper?


Panic using metapost in context.
This used to work. I did a file that previously (\thisisutilityversion 
{1998.12.20}) had good output but now has "unknown" everywhere for  
textext calls!

	draw (0,0)--(100,0)--(100,50)--(50,50)--(50,100)--(0,100)--(0,0);
	label (textext("label"), (10,25));

But now I see "unknown" as the text typeset instead of "label"!
What happened. This is disastrous.

yours sincerely,
dr. H. van der Meer
