let's for the moment assume that it uses progname=mpost (best not mess 
around with in around tex live launch time)

so, basically, the problem with mptopdf was in the mixed up switch

btw, i think that future versions of tex/mp should freeze all mem values 
at format time (currently only some values are frozen); maybe with the 
exception of the mem top/bot values
