The on-the-fly generation of metapost images is off because
the setting for shell_escape in your texmf.cnf does not allow
execution of system commands.

The reason why the original filename worked is because in thatcase
the image (ConTeXtWikiLogo-mpgraph.1) has already been generated
earlier (or separately).
