Comment (by r-a-y):

 It sounds like Brajesh might not be adding the appropriate access level
 checks in his background plugin.

 About your other questions:

 If you don't want to use a root members page for profiles, you can get rid
 of the /members/ slug by using:

 define ( 'BP_ENABLE_ROOT_PROFILES', true );

 Regarding your latter question, the reason why we don't have settings on
 the top-level right now is the Settings component doesn't use a WP page
 like the rest of the other components.  Also, we have to worry about
 backwards compatibility; such a change would affect the many, existing
 themes and templates that use the current system.

 For your own needs, it's probably possible to reverse-engineer the
 Settings component to do what you want, but you'd have to remove the
 current settings component and code your own.  If you are a developer,
