Ok, so the user asks for --no-samples but at the same time asks for
precision equal to :ppp, we should stop right there and warn the user
that that is not possible, instead of silently dropping off what the
user explicitely asked.

I'm cooking a few patches to allow that, then we can apply your patch,
that, with the current set of users will never kick in :-)
