Assign Task to a group Member

Hello,

I am currently trying to assign a task to a member of a group with minimal success. The goal is during an advanced workflow to allow user_one to pick the name of a user from a drop down list of group members from within the 'Task Properties' and have the task be assigned to a user who is a member of the group. I am successful when I invite each member of the group to the space individually but if I invite the group as a whole to the space only the name of the group shows in the drop down and causes an error when I try to move the workflow forward.

Definition:
    <swimlane name="Analyst">
                <assignment class="org.alfresco.repo.workflow.jbpm.AlfrescoAssignment">
                        <pooledactors>#{people.getGroup('GROUP_Analyst')}</pooledactors>
                </assignment>
    </swimlane>

Constraint:

         <constraint name="ygrd:AnalystConstraint" type="com.efoundry.alfresco.constraints.GroupMembersConstraint">
             <parameter name="allowedValues">
                <list><value>Analyst</value></list>
             </parameter>
         </constraint>
