Thanks for the tip. After I've committed the lines with
Field[Text][Text] in simpleslides-s-BigNumber.tex, it could compile
successfully. I think this is a metafun bug?

    point to the source of the error, but I don't know where to look.

Make sure that you run the latest beta. Indeed there has been a change to these Page related areas because in a recent mp there were several issues (most related to memory leaks), so I made a less demanding implementation. In the meantime Taco has fixed a lot of mp issues so upcoming luatex/mplib are okay (performance and memory wise). It all relates to mp now having scaled and double mode.

(Alan is testing the mp double mechanisms.)

Of course there can be other issues,
