 This is not a regression, but is a case where a limitation in the design
 of bp-pages is being surfaced in the new, wizardless setup.

 Three core BP components have directory pages: Members, Activity, and
 Groups. It's always been the case (since 1.5) that components activated
 after the wizard need to have directory pages created for them manually.
 It just so happens that, because all components were activated by default,
 few people ever stumbled upon this somewhat cumbersome experience.

 Now we don't have a wizard, and directory pages are created automatically
 on installation. But since Groups is not one of the default components, it
 means that new BP installations will *always* have to manually create a
 Groups directory page when activating Groups. So, while before this was a
 minor annoyance for a small subset of users, it's now a hurdle for
 everyone who decides to try out BP Groups.

 I'm going to tweak the way that the Components page works so that
 directory pages are automatically created when a new directory-having
 component is activated. In practice, this'll only affect Groups. IMO it's
 a bit annoying to be auto-creating pages, but we're already doing it
 during activation, and it's the lesser of two evils in this case (the
 other evil being the really annoying experience of having to create the
 page manually).
