Thanks Hans,
I made some tweaking with values (quasi-randomly...).
Console is extremely slow in processing the file including the  
MPGraphic (I thought many times it hanged, then letting it run without  
looking I discovered some minutes after that it was still working).
Looking at the the terminal (from TeXShop), it seemed that the process  
was not finished, so I killed it, but the pdf is complete.
In any case now I have my drawing of 10,000 squares.

Best and thanks a lot
