CheckMK 2.0.0p14 has a problem with brackets in service names

Upgraded to 2.0.0p14, and now CheckMK causes problems with nagios service, such errors generated:

Error: The description string for service 'HW FAN3 (system)' on host 'ILO_esx4' contains one or more illegal characters.
Error: The description string for service 'HW FAN4 (system)' on host 'ILO_esx4' contains one or more illegal characters.
Error: The description string for service 'HW FAN6 (system)' on host 'ILO_esx4' contains one or more illegal characters.
Error: The description string for service 'HW FAN7 (system)' on host 'ILO_esx4' contains one or more illegal characters.
Error: The description string for service 'HW FAN8 (system)' on host 'ILO_esx4' contains one or more illegal characters.

It has a problem with the brackets and doesn’t seem to support it anymore, so (system) is a problem or also (memory). This used to work fine up until recently. I have attempted to add the system again but it isn’t anything to do with it being an old host. Even when adding new host, it still shows service names with brackets, and fails.

Thx, I guess there will be a fix for it sometime soon then, just like the host group problem in 2.0.0p13.
