Comment (by wpdennis):

 Seperating the canonical issue is a good idea, thank you.

 I've disabled all relevant plugins in my test case. But to be sure, I just
 installed a new BuddyPress test site. Every instance is running with
 WordPress 3.3.1 and BuddyPress 1.5.4.

 In the new test environment I have no additional plugins installed and
 nothing activated but BuddyPress itself. I'm using the default theme, too.

 I print out $wp_query->query_vars in a new group and it says  [attachment]
 => test :

 On this url it says [error] => 404 :

 I found the reason why your query_vars are looking good, too: the
 permalink config. I'm using "/%postname%/" in every installation. If I set
 it to anything else, I get the results you described. Thanks for pointing
 me into that direction!

 I have a productive installation with that 404/attachment behavior. If I
 wouldn't rely on is_single() in my breadcrumb menu AND have a picture with
 the same name as one of the groups, I wouldn't have discovered this issue.
 So, it is very likely to run a BuddyPress site without recognizing this

 But the real "blocker" is the canonical issue. If we seperate the tickets,
 the issue described in this ticket isn't a real "blocker" anymore.
