[metapost] Strange infont results

The problem with the closing parenthesis is the same when using pcrr.
I'll try the newest metapost to see what happens.

Alas, the ``<<'' with pcrr is not replaced by a "neat" character as in 
tyxtt, a feature I really liked :)

My code is:

string theFont;
  theFont := "pcrr"; % or "tyxtt"
  boxit.ff(("Font name: ( ) " & theFont) infont theFont);
  boxit.s0("<<stereotype>>" infont theFont );
  boxit.s1("<<a>>, <<b>>, <<c>>" infont theFont);
  boxit.g0("[guard] " infont theFont);
  boxit.g1("[stillhungry] closing paranthesis SHOWN after hungry !" infont 
  boxit.g2("[still hungry] closing paranthesis NOT shown after hungry !" 
infont theFont);
  boxit.g3("[][][][]hm]" infont theFont);
  boxit.c0("{constraint}" infont theFont);
  boxit.c1("{a constraint} closing paranthesis NOT shown !" infont 
  drawboxed(ff, s0, s1, g0, g1, g2, g3, c0, c1);
