On the face of it your error is clearly signalled by -ldecomp-. Your
-at()- option is illegal, as it contains three elements and none
contains a scalar value.

If I understand this correctly an option of the form

at(foo 42; bar 24)

would be legal.

I guess you didn't get a reply because people were surprised that you
were puzzled.
