I tried it on context live (2006.04.04), and it works as hoped (figure 2
is the on on top of the page with numbering=nocheck, otherwise it's
numbered in page order). Definitely I need to do an upgrade.
But I noticed another problem: The context-live pdf is black/white,
whereas on my system the figures come out in color. I could reproduce
the difference with the following:
$ texexec --pdf 3 => 3.pdf is B/W
$ texexec 3.tex
$ dvips 3
$ ps2pdf 3.ps => 3.pdf is in color
texexec --color makes the two pathways give identical pdf files, but
shouldn't they also be identical (and B/W) without the --color? Or is
that too much of a mess, to inquire into what colors the metapost (or
other EPS) figures are doing.
