You can see it here, but the only changes to your graphics can be seen
in the source, not in the final PDF:

I don't know what exactly has changed in ConTeXt that could influence
that specific behaviour (I guess that the graphics are simply
processed one after another instead of processing them separately),
but indeed I was able to reproduce the behaviour on contextgarden
(I'll try to write to Patrick once more - the garden still uses the
perl version and doesn't have all the variables set priperly, but he
seems to be extremely busy).

The (temporal) remedy for that is to use
instead as I said last time, but then again the labels won't work as
they should. There might a remedy for that as well, but it's not worth
investigating it.

You probably have heard that trillions of times already, but you
*really*, *really* and again *really* should do two things before
trying to proceed:
- update your ConTeXt (just unzip the cont-tmf.zip over the old files;
later you'll be able to do that with ctxtools --update). Some
*enormous* changes were introduced to metafun graphics handling in
April and May.
- call ConTeXt with "texmfstart texexec". See the folder
texmf-local/scripts/stubs/unix. You should use it's content as the
source of executables.

texexec --version should return you
TeXExec | version 6.2.0 - 1997-2006 - PRAGMA ADE/POD
