And this fixes the second problem, with this now:
ffmpeg -bt -1-2-3-4-5-6-7+100
doesn't issues an out of range value error.
Also I continue to think that the logics that handle number and flags
values in av_set_string() should be kept separated (e.g. they should
be managed in two different blocks).
