    The registration page is showing correctly, but the next page generates an error:

    Warning: sprintf() [function.sprintf]: Too few arguments in /www/htdocs/mydomain/wp/wp-includes/wpmu-functions.php on line 1111

    An email is send to the new user but it contains no text at all.

    Did you make any modifications to wpmu-functions.php?

    Make sure you overwrite it with one from the WPMU 2.8.1 install.

    I just tested this and it works.

    I just made a fresh install from the german buddy press combo package. With a new database. Same error.

    If you want to test:

    No other plugins are activated, just BP.

    I’ve found the bug.

    It’s the german translation. If I switch the language to english, everything works fine.

    Greeting, Dirk

    Please post the plug to trac.

    I should do what?

    Post the plug to trac? What the hell does that mean?

    I’ve posted a detailed error description and the solution in the german wp mu forum.
