 Confirmed. The issue is this.
 - Clicking 'All Members' launches an AJAX request handled by
 - That function loads members/members-loop.php
 - That template does a bp_has_members() loop using bp_ajax_querystring()
 - In bp_has_members() we check the $_REQUEST global for search terms 's',
 and filter based on it

 There seem to be at least two problems here.
 (1) We (probably) shouldn't be looking at URL arguments out of $_GET when
 dealing with AJAX requests
 (2) We (probably) shouldn't be filtering based on $_REQUEST['s'] in such a
 forced way in bp_has_members()

 Problem (2) is a more general issue. IMO whatever else we do, we should
 move this logic http://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/browser/tags/1.5/bp-
 members/bp-members-template.php#L309 *above* the parsing of
 default/function args. That way, it'll be possible to turn off the
 search_terms even when there's something hanging around in $_REQUEST.

 That, by itself, probably won't fix the problem here, since the template
 will still default to $_GET['s'] in its query. Perhaps we want to make an
 exception in bp_dtheme_ajax_querystring() to the effect that, when
 DOING_AJAX, pass a null value for search_terms? Would like to hear
 feedback from others.
