Eigenvectors of a Complex Hermitian Matrix

I am having some problems with the Eigenvector[] call of Mathematica for
a complex Hermitian matrix. The returned vectors seem to be incorrect.
I found a strange comment in the help tool, telling me something like
that Eigenvector[] finds the eigenvectors of an approximately real
matrix, but the matrix elements can be complex. What does that mean?

Thanks,
Gerhard
