[metapost] Bugs in mpost 1.202 (and less)?

I have stumbled on a couple of potential bugs (mpost compiled for Intel
Mac OS X with gcc 4.0.1):
1) the following code:
vardef foo@# = @ enddef; foo.a;
causes a segmentation fault with mpost 1.201 and 1.202, while it
correctly generates a stack capacity exceeded error in mpost 1.005. Note
vardef foo = @ enddef; foo.a;
reports the capacity exceeded error correctly in all versions. So, this
bug seems related to the presence of the suffix parameter.
2) This program:
n = 32767; % or whatever number
for i = n upto 32767: endfor;
seems to loop forever (tested on 1.005 and 1.202).
Can anybody confirm?
