Took me a while, but I now see it. I have to set

#declare MOP_UseFrenchQuoteMarks = yes;

in quote.pov as setting it to no works OK for me.

I suspect something wrong with the macro ram caching mechanism which is 
part of all the relatively recent v3.8 versions including povr and v4.0 

The macros in this include are quite large (likely not memory cached) - 
which might or might not be related to the issue. The bit getting 
switched in and out is not much different in size, but, who knows...

I'll have to come back to this issue another day. :-(
