Set workflow variable to permission group

I have a problem using a Person or Group variable in a workflow. I set the variable to a Manager (field in the current item) or a SharePoint permission group: (TEST) Approval Group. Then I use this variable to assign a task or send an email. If it is set to the Manager it works. If I set it to the permission group it fails incorrectly resolving the name of that permission group (see below: 896;#(TEST) Approval Group). Is this the expected behavior? Interestingly if I set a default for this variable to the permission group it works!
