Comment (by hnla):

 This isn't necessarily a proper approach but testing quickly reworked
 things to:

 if ( $template_file ) :
  $primary_templates = array();
  $primary_templates = array(


 get_page_template() returns an empty string if the selection is the WP
 default template.

 In my test I have page full width selected for the bp pages under 2014 I
 also have /buddypress/buddypress.php setup resulting in a clash where WP
 adds the template name to the body class. I've then simply  checked if
 'get_page_template_slug' returns a value and set our $primary_templates
 array to empty (not suggesting that's a correct approach ) I now display
 the named page.php template until I deselect the template and let BP run
 the full template set and my buddypress.php is found and used.
