 Looking at this more closely, I think [10110] is unrelated. I'm fairly
 sure this dates back to [3490]. See #2710. I managed to reproduce on 2.3.x
 and 2.2.x, though I'd wager it goes back to 1.5.

 The issue is this: BP's directory searches use AJAX. The no-js fallback is
 to send requests to `/search/`, at which point
 `bp_core_action_search_site()` grabs the request and reroutes it. This
 means that it's not possible to have a page called `/search/` on a BP

 FWIW I think this is pretty crummy. There's no reason why we need to steal
 a pretty permalink for this purpose. We should just send search requests
 to `bp_get_root_domain()`, with `$_POST['bp-is-search'] = 1` or something
 like that.

 If you can verify that this is not a new problem, we'll fix this for 2.5.
