#5433: Buddypress breaks with symlinked plugins dir

 If the plugins directory in WP uses symlink, buddypress breaks (1.9.2 and
 1.8.1 at least) and doesn't show js, etc.

 The default debian stable WP package, using the script provided in the
 package, creates the symlink for the plugins.

 The only way to make buddypress work, that I found, was setting
 define('WP_PLUGIN_DIR', ...) to the appropriate dir.

 Can this be documented somewhere ?

 Thanks a lot,
