I also see the same thing in zmailer 2.99.50-s5.

If as you say, previous versions (which ones?) did work, then
either prior to 2.99.50-s5 or within the range of s5 to s8
some good fix in the parser was undone...

I wonder where the extra ')' at the end is coming from?

My simple test:

	Error in "To" header address:
                	              ^-missing closing ')' in token
	The entire original message file follows.
	verbose "../public/v_a21403"
	from root
	todsn ORCPT=rfc822;jmack@phys.ualberta.ca+20(j(m))
	to jmack@phys.ualberta.ca (j(m))
	To: jmack@phys.ualberta.ca (j(m))
	Subject: test
