If you mean filter for continuation list export, it controls whether
continuation symbols without comment will be included in the list or

This is produced by new metapost version, which is now included in the
windows distribution. The turningnumber (used in therion to detect
self-intersecting scrap outline) is not calculated perfectly in
metapost, so another algorithm has been included to check the
computation. If the algorithms give different results it means that
you cannot be so sure that the scrap outline is really degenerated
(and you can ignore therion's message about intersecting outline for
that scrap).

That's fine, just the max. value is limiting. In this case 1000 will
be dynamically increased if necessary.
