 I found a weird behalf during group creation on frontend. It's not really
 a bug, but simply "strange" and using a custom function.

 I just want want to let you know what happens.

 The function in bp-custom: (found on a old forum topic)

 function my_filter_group_status( $status ) {
 if( $key = array_search( 'hidden', $status ) ) {
 unset( $status[$key] );

 return $status;
 add_filter( 'groups_allowed_status', 'my_filter_group_status' );

 Has no utility, doesn't work, i simply forget to remove it.

 Now with that function active, log in as user and create a new public
 group and go over to step 3 or 4, then go back to your groups directory.

 The group exist, but has 2 members and both are group admins ! I made
 several tessts with different users. The second member is not always a
 friend of the user, and is apparently randomly added.

 Remove the bad function and create a new group again. Anything is correct:
 group is created with only one member, the group admin.
