[NTG-context] texexec.ini not read

I was trying to make the stand along context work with cygwin using 
cygwin ruby. Following the advice on the wiki of adding 
/scripts/context/ruby to rubylib, everything works fine. However, I am 
not able to enable write18. I copied texexec.rme to texexec.ini and 
added -shell-escape to all set TeXPassString in texexec.ini. However, 
I still get

system(mpost .....) disabled

in my log file. Reading through newtexexec.rb it seems that it does 
not check the ini file. Is this correct? Or am I missing something.
