[NTG-context] gnuplot-module broken under lmtx

Hi

It's little off-topic as there are officially no modules included in lmtx.
But when I used the modules from a mkiv-installation, there was little to
no problem. But with the gnuplot-module I can't fix the error myself.

MWE:
\usemodule[gnuplot]
\startGNUPLOTscript[sin]
   plot sin(x)
\stopGNUPLOTscript

\starttext
\placefigure[here]{Sine Test}{\useGNUPLOTgraphic[sin]}
\stoptext

Under mkiv everything is fine. mkiv creates a file gnuplot-gnuplot-1.plt,
sends this file to gnuplot and uses the output gnuplot-gnuplot-1-ctx.tex.

Under lmtx only the files gnuplot-gnuplot-1.tmp
and gnuplot-gnuplot-inclusions.tmp are created. When I copy the correct
.plt file from a mkiv-run, no gnuplot-gnuplot-1-ctx.tex is generated. If I
copy the correct -ctx.tex file from a mkiv-run, I still get an error.

Relevant part from the logfile of a working mkiv-run:

from a lmtx-run (no .plt-file and -ctx.tex given):

The control sequence at the end of the top line
of your error message was never \def'ed. If you have
misspelled it (e.g., `\hobx'), type `I' and the correct
spelling (e.g., `I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue,
and I'll forget about whatever was undefined.

mtx-context     | fatal error: return code: 256


Sorry, can't help more, as I don't know where the problem is.

Thanks for fixing it in time, when the modules get installed with lmtx.
