Description

Spurious parentheses appear after glossaries terms with smallcaps option.

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

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\renewcommand*{\newacronymhook}{%
   \edef\tmp{\noexpand\textsc{\the\glsshorttok}}%
   \expandafter\glsshorttok\expandafter{\tmp}%
}
\renewcommand*{\acrpluralsuffix}{\textup{\glspluralsuffix}}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
but I wonder if it could be somehow integrated in the package.

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).

MWE

Download (383B)

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{libertine}
\usepackage[smallcaps]{glossaries}
\makeglossaries
%
\newacronym{label}{svm}{support vector machine}
\newglossaryentry{electrolyte}{
  name=electrolyte,
  description={solution able to conduct electric current}
}
%
\begin{document}
\begin{itemize}
\item \gls{label}
\item \gls{electrolyte}
\end{itemize}
%
\printglossary
\end{document}
