[tex-live] [MetaPost] truncated map file

there is a bug in MetaPost v1.000 distributed with MiKTeX that Taco
couldn't reproduced on GNU/Linux (with TeXLive?).  Could someone please
recheck if the following bug can be observed with TeXLive on Windows?

The line containing "fontmapfile" needs to be adjusted to TeXLive.  Just
deleting it could also be sufficient.

Best regards,
