[FFmpeg-user] Invalid duration specification for force_key_frames

I think I mixed up a few things. It looks like expr: is only valid for
option force_key_frames. That is the original option I had troubles with.
Just to make a simple example, I have used it for the frame rate as well.
But now I do understand that "expr:" must not be used for the frame rate.
If I simply specify max(25,30) it is working!
But still my option force_key_frames is not working. From the ffmpeg manual
It gives me the following error:
Invalid duration specification for force_key_frames:
On Linux I use quotes around expr:gte(t,n_forced*5) or put backslashes in
front of the round brackets otherwise bash starts to complain.
So, it seems to be related to option force_key_frames only.
