When using hash literals inside a template they must be escaped in order to avoid errors. If the characters are not escaped an "Invalid template" exception will be thrown.
Make sure that the header template is defined like below and it would work as expected.
groupHeaderTemplate: "wo \\#"
For reference I also updated the dojo sample. Check it out below and let me know how it works for you.
