#4305: Numeric Usernames and Private Messaging Bug

 I have posted this on the forums and been told this is likely a bug so I
 have been told to post it here.

 I am currently developing a buddypress website where the login username is
 a 7 digit number. I have installed a fresh copy of the latest version of
 buddypress (1.5.6) and Wordpress (3.4).

 What I have found that if I private message a member whos login user name
 is not purely numeric it works fine and the message is sent. If I try to
 send a message to a member with a pure numeric login username such as 345
 or 2433222 it doesn’t matter the length of the number I get a red box at
 the top of the private message form with the message “There was an error
 sending that message, please try again”.

 Members with a numeric username can send message fine aswell. Whats weird
 is if they start the private message conversation the the reply
 functionality works fine with a numeric username.

 Many Thanks,
