Comment (by dcavins):

 With my proposed fix, here’s the behavior I’m seeing. If you load the post
 edit page with the “visual” editor preselected, then `bp_mentions` gets
 attached to the `wp_editor` iframe as expected. If you switch to the text
 editor, `bp_mentions` is attached there as well. If the page loads with
 the text pane visible, `bp_mentions` is attached to the text editor as
 expected, but `loadMentionsInTinyMCE` uses up its tries and gives up
 trying to attach the iframe, and when you switch to the visual editor,
 `bp_mentions` doesn’t work.

 Maybe the better bet would be to attach to the `wp_editor` iframe when
 it's loaded (from @boone: [http://teleogistic.net/2012/02/09/using-init-

 By adding this action:
 function bp_add_mentions_on_tiny_mce_init( $initArray ) {
   $initArray['setup'] = 'function(ed) {
           function(ed) {

   return $initArray;
 add_filter( 'tiny_mce_before_init', 'bp_add_mentions_on_tiny_mce_init' );

 to a functions file, and using the attached modified `mentions.js`,
 `loadMentionsInTinyMCE()` is fired when the editor is loaded. This might
 be worth looking into?
