Sorry, I noticed this problem after sending the patch, but I do not know
an easy way to solve it. To handle sexps properly, we need to do
something more complex than just a simple regexp. Probably, using
org-element--parse-paired-brackets or similar code.

Fixing this is (down) in my todo-list, but patches are welcome.
