 Thanks for your feedback and patch @mgibbs189

 As i've said here #5140 i've managed to reproduce the trouble.

 1/ There's a javascript issue for sure
 2/ While regular users are still reaching the site.url/groups/groupslug
 /request-membership/, a superadmin gets a 404.

 Trouble starts in bp-groups/bp-groups-loader.php because the screen
 function is not available as there's this check {{{! bp_current_user_can(
 'bp_moderate' )}}} around line 422

 I'll check @mgibbs189's patch and i think we should also do something for
 part 2 of the bug to avoid the 404 in case the loggedin user is a

 As superadmins can see all groups content, they don't need to be part of
 the group, but i agree it should be fixed.
