Comment (by boonebgorges):

 The problem seems to happen when the slug gets run through the chain
 sanitize_title() -> sanitize_title_with_dashes() -> utf8_uri_encode(). The
 process of uri_encoding the non-Latin characters makes the slug very long.
 sanitize_title_with_dashes() limits the length of the converted slug to
 200 characters, but the 'slug' column in the BP groups table only allowed
 for 100 characters. As a result, some of the uri-encoded characters were
 getting cut off and made unreadable.

 Allowing the slug column to accept 200 characters fixes the problem.
