 > How did you create this user?
 > Currently, BuddyPress only allows you to create usernames with
 alphanumeric characters.
 > I also tried to create a user with one of your non-english examples from
 the [https://codex.wordpress.org/Users_Add_New_Screen WP Admin Users
 screen] into the "Username" field, but could not because WordPress does
 not allow this.

 I inherited this project and the users were already there. The problem I
 described was only half present in version 1.5.6 - you could get to a
 user's page from the list of members, but the admin option link to edit
 their profile was broken as described above. I upgraded to v1.6.1 in the
 hope that it would be fixed, but now the problem extends to the normal
 members list.

 Obviously this is not a bug then, but a problem with the site. Sorry for
 the diversion.
