 This is copied from my post [http://buddypress.org/forums/topic/bug-
 buddypress-to-wordpress-profile-syncing-broken here].

 We're running BP 1.2.1 and WPMU 2.9.2 on our site. We're using the default
 theme bundled with BP 1.2.1 and are displaying the "sitewide activity"
 option on the front page.

 When we place the "Members" widget in the sidebar it only displays some of
 the user's display names correctly. More precisely, for some users it
 displays their "username" while for others it shows their "display name".

 But everywhere else on the site their "display names" are always shown,
 which is what we want. But why isn't this happening on the "Members"
 Widget? Logging in as some of the users I see that in their Wordpress
 dashboard profile that their nickname hasn't been changed at all.

 If I change their nickname from the wordpress dashboard then it displays
 correctly on the "Members" widget. But changing the "display name" in
 Buddypress doesn't always change the "nickname" back in Wordpress.

 But then I log in as another user and now even changing their publicly
 displayed name in the Wordpress Dashboard doesn't change their "display
 name" in their Buddypress profile.

 So there's some inherent problem with the Buddypress/Wordpress profile

 And yes, I've checked that the "Disable BuddyPress to WordPress profile
 syncing?" option in the Dashoboard "Buddypress" >> "General Settings" is
 marked to "No".
