Still the same thing, it just reports my group name as the code itself
not the evaluated result.  
I'll send a hip file over to support...

Backticks only evaluate hscript expressions. To use a python expression
on string parameters, you must create a channel.
   - Go to frame 1 and create a key on the Group parameter
   - Right click on the parameter and change the language to python
   - Change the expression to your python code.
