 Thanks for the ticket, @m_uysl.

 I worked through the problem a bit and it's not straightforward to solve.
 The root issue is, as noted in the description, that the `upload_dir`
 isn't being filtered in a consistent way. When you filter via
 `bp_attachments_cover_image_upload_dir`, the filter is effective during
 `wp_handle_upload()` but not in other places in the API (such as

 There are a handful of places where it's possible that we could run
 `upload_dir` through `upload_dir_filter()`. For example, in
 `bp_attachments_cover_image_ajax_upload()`, we can do the following:

         // Get BuddyPress Attachments Uploads Dir datas.
         $bp_attachments_uploads_dir = bp_attachments_uploads_dir_get();
 +       $bp_attachments_uploads_dir =
 $cover_image_attachment->upload_dir_filter( $bp_attachments_uploads_dir );

 This fixes half of the comparisons during the AJAX handler. The other half
 is harder to solve. Later in `bp_attachments_cover_image_generate_file()`,
 we do the following check:

 if ( false === $dimensions || $args['file'] !== $args['cover_image_dir'] .
 '/' . wp_basename( $args['file'] ) ) {
     return false;

 This check fails without doing some manipulation to the
 `BP_Attachment_Cover_Image` object. That object caches some properties
 (like `base_dir`) in a way that isn't sensitive to the
 `bp_attachments_cover_image_upload_dir` filter.

 This is not a very good explanation (I didn't really get to the bottom of
 things) but it gestures in the direction of a solution, which is to ensure
 the `bp_attachments_cover_image_upload_dir` filter is applied to all ways
 that the cover image object generates its upload paths.
