[...] mail-e-a-c vs gnus-e-a-c.

mail-e-a-c also fails when for a single name/comment part of the
email address:

(mail-extract-address-components "lawrence <address@hidden>")
    => (nil "address@hidden")

Which, by my reading of RFC2822 is a valid address form (ICBW).

Time for a bug report I wonder?
