 > Is there another trac for this plugin?

 It's the same as the WP plugins trac. (BuddyPress Backwards Compatibility
 - http://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/browser/buddypress-backwards-
 compatibility). However, as DJPaul already stated, this is an issue for
 the individual plugin authors. The backwards compatibility plugin's sole
 job is to make sure that the old, deprecated functions from versions past
 are available to themes (and in a lesser, last resort, sense, plugins).
 It's meant to be a bridge until you can update your theme to function
 properly with the current version of BP and it's new functions.

 > Does the problem be on BP 1.2.x, BuddyPress Backwards Compatibilty 0.6
 or the plugins?

 This question has been answered twice already. The answer is still that
 it's not BP or the BP Backwards Compatability Plugin. However, it's not
 the plugins authors problem either. The problem is with your theme. The
 plugin authors have updated their plugins to be only compatible with at
 least BP 1.2+. This means that they no longer use functions that have been
 removed and placed in the BP Compatibility plugin. They use functions from
 1.2+ only. However, you're theme still uses the old functions. The result:
 plugins can't work with your theme because you don't have the necessary
 functions in your theme.

 The issue with duplicate user menus, is likely to be a bug in BP compat,
 but that's still not a BP issue, and still doesn't belong on the BP trac.
 You could bring it up in the forums or you can file a ticket with the BP
 compat trac.
