router barfing on (comment(comment))

I'm still running version 2.2 (no offense to Matti - I'm just too busy, 
and 2.2 mostly works for us and I don't want to have to re-create all 
the local magic in our cf files).

Has anybody ever figured out why header lines containing addresses (To: 
From: etc.) with comments containing"(" and ")" cause the router to die a 
terrible death?

I have some Start Trek fans who keep managing to nuke all 9 of our
routers because they love to use comments within comments.  And it really 
should be able to handle it.

Even if I can find out how it's been fixed in the mea-* code (has it 
been?), I could probably apply that fix to the 2.2 code...
