and don't blame me for that!  ;)   it is a limitation of the fortran runtime that reads the inlist.

it is not an interpreter that can parse and evaluate anything as complicated as "1 + 1".   

i've been tempted to replace inlists by a python script to be executed each time we currently read the inlist,
but that's too much baggage for now.   we're going to stick to the limited but simple fortran inlist scheme.

you just need to be aware of the limitations.    thanks to josiah and others for explaining this issue.
