comment XeLaTeX with polyglossia and Greek
Yes, that's what I meant with my comment. (Sorry if I was unclear.) With the default language set to greek I get Greek headings for the TOC and no error.

comment XeLaTeX with polyglossia and Greek
Your example works fine for me. (TL 2011 on a Mac) Perhaps you have a duplicate of the font somewhere (e.g. an OTF and a TTF version?) This can sometimes mess up XeLaTeX.

comment Control start point of nested list
This is all explained in the the enumitem documentation. (Check leftmargin=*) And now that you have a working sample document, it's better to post that than just the description of what you want.
