#1846: logical login redirect replacement for bp-default

 In bp-default, the login form in sidebar.php redirects to

 <input type="hidden" name="redirect_to" value="<?php bp_root_domain() ?>"

 which has the unwanted effect for the user of taking them away form their
 entry point to the site, forcing either a page back or suer that gives up
 on that page and moves on.

 Suggest using:

 <input type="hidden" name="redirect_to" value="<?php echo wp_get_referer()
 ?>" />

 in order to keep the user on the page he was on when attempting to login,
 keeping the experience consistent
