Thanks.  This is the first I've heard about `image'.  I found the
documentation in _Drawing Graphs with MetaPost_.

This is what _A User's Manual for MetaPost_ has to say:
 "[...] the dotlabel statement.  This is exactly like the label statement
except that it adds a dot at the indicated coordinates."

Therefore, the difference in their behavior in this case seems like a bug
to me.  Do you know about this already, Taco?
