[NTG-context] internal mptopdf conversion fails on older mps file (using MkIV, beta 2013.12.26)

The MkIV internal mptopdf converter fails on the following minimal example.
Here is the tex:

------- cut test2.tex here -------------
\enabletrackers[graphics.conversion,graphics.inclusion,fonts.mapfiles,fonts.loading,fonts.missing,fonts.mapping]
\starttext
\externalfigure[fig.1][frame=on]
\blank
\externalfigure[fig-1.pdf][frame=on]
\stoptext
------- cut test2.tex here -------------

And here is the figure, which was produced with mpost 0.993 (and also
converted to fig-1.pdf using the 'mptopdf' command):

-------- cut fig.1 here ------------

Running it through MkIV with the 2013.12.26 beta (or the stable context)
produces an empty frame for the inclusion of fig.1, but the correct
triangle for the inclusion of fig-1.pdf.  The empty frame has the
correct size, so the parser is getting at least as far as the bounding
box.

If I regenerate fig.1 using a recent metapost (1.803), the mps file is
simpler, and it is incorporated correctly by context.
