Sorry, but I cannot remember just what backend everybody uses, in your 
case you would have no reason too ;-)

Have you considered moving to the UK, we don't have those funny marks 
here ;-)

No and if you did, I don't think it would fix this problem, is locales 
setup correctly ?

If it is, you might have found a bug in wbinfo.

Having said that, you should be using 'getent group Domain Admins' 
(where 'Domain Admins' is replaced with your version (sorry, but as I 
said, we don't have those funny marks))
