I did not report that grid.mp fails; I reported that the
"bug occurs". Naturally I used a test file trimmed down to
only one relevant command:
% test.mp
   drawarrow (0,0)--(50,50)
     if 2=2: withcolor red elseif 3=2: withcolor blue fi;
% end of test.mp

All 4 versions mentioned above (on windows XP, if that matters)
produced the error message: "! Extra elseif".
