I see that cycle is the way to go:

  path p ; p := (0,0)..(3,3.5)..(9,-3.5)..(12,0)..(9,3.5)..(3,-3.5)..(0,0);
  draw p xsized .9TextWidth withcolor .625red;
  path p ; p := (0,0)..(3,3.5)..(9,-3.5)..(12,0)..(9,3.5)..(3,-3.5)..cycle;
  draw p xsized .9TextWidth ;

Closing without cycle gives an asymetrical path. I’d rather say it is
wrong, but this is all Greek to me.

On the other side, I’m afraid that cycle has problems with lmt_followtext.

Could anyone confirm this?

Many thanks for your help,
