 BP 1.2.8 and WP 3.1

 Only style.css file of bp-default child theme can be edited.
 First reported by @StevieG http://buddypress.org/community/groups/how-to-

 I was able to replicated in test multisite install:

 e.g. bp-default child theme mychild folder has following files:
 - footer.php
 - functions.php
 - header.php
 - style.css

 1. Go to Network Admin > Appearance > Edit

 2. Choose bp-default child theme, mychild, and style.css is default file
 for editing and links to other child theme files are listed.

 3. Choose footer.php, header.php, or functions.php file of said child
 theme and you get "Sorry, that file cannot be edited." screen online.

 Note: I can edit other child theme files of WordPress and custom
 BuddyPress framework child theme files.
