It is confused between fig.1.mpx and fig.mpx.

When MP searches for the mpx file, it changes the 'current extension'
into mpx. So your 'fig.1' becomes 'fig.mpx'. I doubt it makes any
sense to attempt to fix this on the executable side, because it is
closely related to the system-dependent code that automatically adds
a '.mp' extension.
