 Though I can't recreate the error exactly the same as you, when I create a
 page called "forums", with bbPress and BuddyPress active/set up, WordPress
 just loads up the Page called "forums" (not bbPress). And, yes, the menu
 item isn't selected (class=current_page_item).

 Tracing this back into wp_list_pages() ->
 $wp_query->get_queried_object_id(), $wp_query['query_vars']['post_type']
 is 'forum'. Because you are using the same URL name ("forums") as the
 registered root of one of bbPress' post types ("forum"). This then
 prevents the current_page_item class being set correctly.

 Though this is unfortunate in this case, everything's working correctly.
 You'll either have to use a page slug other than "forums" for your page in
 the navigation, or use custom menus and create a http://.../forums/ link.
