Sorry to tack on to an old post, but this is EXACTLY the issue I’m having as well. AFAICT, BP is NOT building the member profile link using the login name. Its using the display name, which often times has spaces in it. In fact, since I’m using a Facebook Connect plugin, the display name ALWAYS has a space in it. I’ve modified that plugin to replace spaces with dashes in the user nicename, hoping BP would use that, but it doesn’t.

Is there an easy way to get BP to use the nicename for the member profile URL? I’m thinking maybe a filter that can be added to bp-custom or the theme functions file, but I’m not sure if a filter exists and not sure if altering the link would mess up the “permalinks” (mod_rewrite).
