#1356: Usernames with @ redirect to home rather than profile

Priority:  major                     |   Milestone:     
Keywords:  username, profile, email  |  
 Using WPMU 2.8.4 and BP 1.1.2, some username links from the member
 directory fail to navigate to the member profile, but return you to the
 home page, instead. No error reported.

 outolumo reported this behavior at http://buddypress.org/forums/topic
 /trouble-with-sign-in-the-username; I've got the same problem.

 The @-symbol appears to be the difference between username links in the
 directory that successfully bring you to the member's profile, and those
 that don't.

 (Why it's key, to us anyway: We need to use email as username, without
 major hacks to make it work. For our use, I haven't come across any WPMU-
 based blockades on this. Outolumo's workaround doesn't happen to work,
 given our user base and use case. Admins establish our user accounts, not
 users via registration.)
