[cron-config] Possible issue with administrators group ?

I am looking at the /bin/cron-config script.

Line 627, we can find :
elif net localgroup "${_admingroup}" | grep -Eiq "^${username}.?$"; then

Why .? at the end of the regexp ? "^${username}.?$"

We could have problems if for example we already have "user1" in
administrators group, and cron user is "user2".
"user2" would then not be added to the administrators group.

Do we have some buggy output from "net localgroup" on some Windows
versions to use .? at the end of the regexp ?

On my Windows XP, using grep -iq "^${username}$" works perfectly.
What about other Windows versions ?

Thank you very much !

Best regards,
