 First, presenting your issue in the above manner isn't going to gain you
 much sympathy, and it certainly won't inspire anyone to work on a

 Second, this was done for a specific reason. That reason is to prevent BP
 profile data from hijacking WP profile data. Hence, the option "Disable
 BuddyPress to WordPress profile syncing?" option in the dashboard. I
 opened a ticket a while back that proposes moving xprofile data into the
 user_meta table, however, that doesn't mean they will be fully in sync
 (see point 1). For technical reasons, that ticket won't be addressed until
 at least BP 1.4.

 Finally, if you're doing it manually, then you're doing it wrong. This can
 easily be done with a custom function or two. See
 xprofile_sync_bp_profile() and xprofile_sync_wp_profile() for more clues
 on how to get started.
