[NTG-context] Compiling a large metapost document

The problem *is* the file size. There is not a minimal example,
because everything works when there is less drawdot commands. There is
125000+ drawdot commands in the file.
The run ends with the message:
If you really absolutely need more capacity, you can ask a wizard to
enlarge me.
mtx-context     | fatal error: return code: 1

I really don't know how to "enlarge" LMTX, so my question is not about
debugging the file, but rather compiling it. The current version of the
file should produce no syntax etc. errors. I accidentally uploaded the
wrong file twice, now it should be fixed, and you should get the same
message in the console as me.
