[metapost] Filenames containing dots

Hi Metaposters,
I am using Metapost v1.504 (from TexLive 2011), and there is the 
following problem:
mpost seems to cut off file names after the first dot, such that the log 
files and pictures
from a file
are created as A.log, A.1, A.2 etc.
but not A.B.log, A.B.1, A.B.2 etc.
This causes major problems with our software. Are there any plans to 
change this?
Or is there even a flag in the existing MetaPost to work around that 
Thanks a lot for your help and advice in advance!
