[NTG-context] runMPgraphicstrue produces undefined figure

I'm playing with simple files in order to learn metafun.  The following
small example produces an undefined figure.  It illustrates either a
context problem or, more likely, a confusion on my part.

================= cut here ===========================================

fill fullcircle scaled 2cm;

\input tufte
================= cut here ===========================================

The figure is a square saying 'undefined'.  Taking away the
\runMPgraphicstrue line produces the expected filled circle.

I use a web2c distribution (linux) with

  context version 2006.08.08 21:51,
  TeXExec | version 6.2.0 - 1997-2006 - PRAGMA ADE/POD

It passes the write18 test given in the metafun-s.pdf manual (p.214 of
the PDF file).
