Well it appears to be a bug. I found this: Error Deleting Role or Group From BISQLGroupProvider in OBIEE 11g [ID 1456674.1]
According to that doc, the solution is to delete, then recreate, the BISQLGroupProvider adapter. Lovely.
DAMMIT, ORACLE, DOES THE WORD TESTING* MEAN ANYTHING TO YOU???? Pathetic. Truly pathetic. You did NOT test this very simple situation.
Here's something else that I find absolutely inexcusable. The instructions for configuring the WLS LDAP authentication with External Table authorization are contained in the downloadable file TechNote_LDAP_Auth_Groups_V3-2.pdf. That pdf has bad instructions in it, instructions that cause the problem that has to be fixed by deleting the adapter that is created by those very instructions.
SO WHY NOT FIX THAT PDF FILE so that everyone who downloads it in the future isn't bitten by this same bug? Oracle is providing us with information in document "A" that tells us how to install a buggy product, and another document "B" that tells us how to fix the bug caused by following the instructions in document "A". It isn't rocket science people -- FIX DOCUMENT "A"!!
