I’m currently working on a major new version of the datatool package. This may take a while. Please be patient. (Experimental version available for testing.)

Spurious parentheses appear after glossaries terms with smallcaps option.

Nicola provided me an workaround: remove 'smallcaps' option and add:

The minimal working example I provide contains 'libertine' package in order to get bold small caps.

The same trouble arises with 'glossaries' v3.05 (pretest TeX Live 2013).
