metapost doesn't calculate the bounding box right in this case, see:
prologues := 3;
hc := halfcircle scaled 200;
linecap := squared;
draw hc shifted (150,300) withpen pencircle scaled 50;
draw bbox(currentpicture) withcolor red;
currentpicture := currentpicture shifted -llcorner(currentpicture);
if you comment out the linecap line, you get a tight bounding box.
