OK, I found another function, mail-extract-address-components, which can
parse the above address string:

    (mail-extract-address-components "Γιώργος Σεφέρης <address@hidden>")
    => ("Γιώργος Σεφέρης" "address@hidden")

So, my problem actually went away. It's probably time to say the usual
"sorry for the noise", from my part at least. :-)

The problem in mail-header-parse-address is probably valid anyway:
