Good to know that it isn't something I did when changing to texlive
from tetex.  Mine might be a similar problem to what you describe
about sometxt (although I used btex..etex), because in my example the
figure has the wrong width (very narrow).

When the output depends on the settings, documents lose portability to
other ConTeXt installations. Most set shell_escape = f, the tetex and
texlive default, and most users won't have set \runMP[TEX]graphicstrue
in cont-sys.rme.
