#2487: Activation Issue with BP 1.2.5 and WordPress 2.9.2

 BuddyPress 1.2.5 has an activation issue under WordPress 2.9.2. When a
 Site Admin goes to activate BuddyPress in the plugins menu, clicking the
 "Activation" link should enable BuddyPress site wide as there is a “Site
 Wide Only: true” header tag in bp-loader.php. However, it does not
 activate site wide.

 You can get BuddyPress to activate site wide be clicking the “Activate
 BuddyPress Site Wide” link — which should not be necessary. This issue is
 only seen in WordPress 2.9.2. BuddyPress activates as it should in
 WordPress 3.0.

 If a fix cannot be found, the “Requires at least” tag in BP’s readme.txt
 file should be changed to WP 3.0. Otherwise, we will have people
 activating BP for a single blog, and not site wide, which will cause
 problems and unnecessary support postings in the forums.

 I'm still investigating to see what changed between 1.2.5 branch test
 versions and the final 1.2.5 tagged version that might be causing this

 This issue has been independently verified by three people. See this
 BuddyPress Support thread for more details:
