[NTG-context] Why does this METAPOST vardef 'save' statement fail?

I have this vardef:
vardef Foo(expr w, h) =
save pth; path pth;
%save pth2; path pth2;
save pic; picture pic;
pth = fullsquare xysized (w, h);
%pth2 = fullsquare xysized (h/4, h/8)
pic := image (
%draw pth2 shifted (-w/2, -h/4);
% all kind of stuff here
setbounds pic to pth;
As soon as I uncomment the bold line (first comment) a mtxrun fails. Whatever I try, a single save statement, etc., I fail in getting a second local variable. The METAPOST manual is no help.
The error shown is:
metapost log > ! Extra tokens will be flushed.
