    I am experiencing the same thing. If I am logged in as an admin, I can see and visit any user’s settings—but not if I am logged in as an author. Also, I have a few modifications in bp-custom.php (bp_core_remove_subnav_item( 'settings', 'general' );,bp_core_new_nav_default(array('parent_slug' => $bp->settings->slug,'screen_function' => 'bp_core_screen_notification_settings','subnav_slug' => 'notifications'));) that are ignored on the “other user’s” ill-accessed settings nav.

    I just tried to duplicate what both of you were experiencing in BuddyPress 1.6.1.

    I logged in as a regular member and tried to navigate to another member’s settings page.  It redirects me back to the member’s home page.

    I’ve read issues similar to both of you about the redirect issue.

    You can try removing the canonical redirect. Do this by adding one of the following in /wp-content/plugins/bp-custom.php:
    add_filter( 'bp_do_redirect_canonical', '__return_false' );

    remove_action( 'bp_template_redirect', 'bp_redirect_canonical', 2 );

    And see if that helps.
