User's Group membership information missing in the user's profile for the users who are having more than one special character (e.g., both a "," and "()" in the user's name)

Editing the group shows the users as members.

Steps to reproduce this issue:

+ Create a User in OID with dn: john\,smith (director),cn=users,dc=idc,dc=oracle,dc=com
+ Add the user as a member of a group, for example "testgroup"
+ Group shows the membership correctly, but the user profile does not show it as a member of the group

Due to this problem, the following error can occur in Portal:

+ Create a Pagegroup in Portal and assign VIEW privilege for the group "testgroup"
+ Login as the user "john" and try to view the page, it returns the following error:

Error: You do not have permission to perform this operation. (WWC-44131)
