The simple Metapost code that follows worked fine until upgrading to recent beta. I don't have a clue exactly when this behaviour was introduced since I switched just recently from the standard Texlive version available in Arch Linux.

draw externalfigure "test.pdf" scaled 10mm;

Now it produces a graphic with size of approximately 110 mm at least in my system with various test files which previously scaled just fine.. Any help is greatly appreciated.
scaled scaled the original size ... long ago that was 1bp but for accuracy reasons that is no longer the case, just use:

draw externalfigure "test.pdf" xsized 10mm;

which in most cases is actually a better method than 'scaled'
