#3280: Invalid URLs are incorrectly handled

 Alot of BuddyPress URLs are not handling invalid URLs correctly. Make sure
 you have wp_debug set.
 These must 404, not redirect back to the home page or a component's root

 1) http://example.com/groups/INVALID/ (and all subdirs, i.e. /forum/,
 /members/, and so on).

 2) http://example.com/groups/valid/INVALID/
 3) http://example.com/groups/valid/forum/INVALID

 4) http://example.com/members/INVALID/
 5) http://example.com/members/valid/INVALID/

 If a valid component is on the URL, I think that component should be
 responsible for handling 404s within that component, rather than letting
 it fall back to BP_Core, e.g.

 status_header( 404 );
