[OS X TeX] section* and header content

In a report where I needed both a French and English abstract, I  
decided not to use the abstract facility of the article class.  
Instead, I made 2 sections,


abstract in French


abstract in English.

All is almost well...

I use the package fancyhdr with default settings. On both abstract  
pages, the header reads "LIST OF FIGURES", not quite what I hoped for.

In Guide to Latex it is said that the * form results in no number  
(perfect here) and no entry in TOC (I want one, so I asked for it and  
I got one). It does not say that no "\leftmark" is created.

Did I do something wrong? If this is normal behavior, how can I  
modify the header just for those 2 pages?

Thanks in advance, help is always forthcoming here!
