 Mqlite - Thanks for the additional details.

 > The privacy settings only seem to work in the first profile group, which

 obscure bug in BP that has, to my knowledge, been there forever, but has
 never really shown itself before. r6069 should fix it.

 > Users cannot change the field's visibility because there's no option in

 members/single/profile/edit.php. If you haven't modified that template in
 your theme, just copy the entire contents over from the trunk version into
 your theme.

 > The privacy settings don't work at all for my own profile
 (administrator). Every field is always visible.

 still having this issue, please give detailed instructions on how to
