there is the following passus in recent Knuth's report
on the drawdot problem:

> I also see that "withpen pencircle scaled 2" gives different
> results from "withpen (pencircle scaled 2)"! In METAFONT there
> is no difference between these.

Was anybody able to reproduce this behavior?
Can anybody guess what can be the problem?
