Unhelpful metapost error

My, I'm all questions today...

When I try to process my survey to produce a PDF plan, metapost appears
to not like something, but there's no error message, so I've no idea
where to look.

I've attached the log, I can send other stuff if that's helpful.

This is therion 0.3.3 on Linux, with THUSESVX defined.

Cheers,
    Olly
