Basiclly, my 'repl' template uses %formataddr(), and instead of getting:

To: MarXa Soler Heredia <address@hidden>  (where X is a oxED)
I got
To: Mar

which didn't work very well once the MTA looked at it...

fprintf(stderr,"non-convertible char found near 
would be an improvement...

(and yes, I know about the ugly of passing 2 address poiinters to max :)
