Hi Hans and Mikael (and others on the list),

I can confirm that even with the newest LMTX [2022.04.15 20:20] the above might 
actually be a bug. mfunctions inside MP strings are not properly rendred. A  
tiny MWE:

    draw textext("\m{\max_i x_i}");

Could trace it down to '\math_function_handle_label' [math-ini] but not sure 
what MP is doing. Also looked into mp-mlib, mlib-pps but could not figure it 
out. I request you to kindly look into it.
