[NTG-context] m-barcodes error

I can’t get the example in the m-barcodes module to work. I have no urgent
need to print barcodes; I was just curious. I'm writing in case I found an
easily corrected bug.

The release notes from 2010.05.08 call this module mkiv only. But according
to the log, the file m-pstricks.mkii is used. And that seems to be the
proximate cause of the error.
