It seems that in some cases expressions are allowed and in other cases 
they are not allowed.
For example settb=1/25 is ok, but asetnsamples=n=48000/25 gives an 
unclear error message.
How can the user know for which parameters it's allowed to use 
expressions and for which not?
I mean without try and error.
