[pstricks] more confusion

Inside a pspicture environment, the code
\parametricplot[linecolor=red]{-1.6}{1.6}{t COSH 2 mul t SINH 1.5 2 mul mul}
(correctly) gives me the right branch of the hyperbola (x^2)/4-(y^2)/9=1, in red.
But the code
\newcommand{\frbranch}[5][1.0]{%
\parametricplot[linecolor=#4]{-#5}{#5}{%
{t COSH #2 mul t SINH #1 #3 mul mul}
}
}%Colored right branch of hyperbola x^{2}/A^{2}-y^{2}/B^{2}=C^{2}; arguments are:
%#1=B/A =slope of asymptotes: default is 1.0
%#2=AC=distance of vertex from origin
%#3=A
%#4=color
%#5=range: to fit inside axb box, use
%#5=MIN(cosh^{-1}(a/A), sinh^{-1}(b/B))
\begin{pspicture}(-5,-5)(5,5)
\frbranch[1.5]{2}{2}{red}{1.6}
\end{pspicture}
crashes on execution.
What am I doing wrong? (Ignore my choice of #5=1.6. It was an arbitrary choice which should affect nothing.)
