 Thanks for the report, DJPaul.

 It's possible that there is a BP bug here, but it's not directly related
 to 'bp_template_content' - a bit of debugging shows that that hook is only
 being fired once (as is the wrapper function

 The duplication begins with `DPA_Shortcodes::display_user_achievements()`.
 My backtrace shows that it's being called from two different spots. First,
 it's called (as expected) from the
 `dpa_bp_members_my_achievements_content()` function, hooked to
 `bp_template_content` - ie, the normal BP template loading technique.
 Second, it's being called from the Achievements theme compatibility layer,
 in particular `dpa_replace_the_content()`.

 Indeed, I'm not sure that this is a regression. The same duplication
 appears to be happening when I test Achievements against BP's 1.7 branch.

 It seems to me that the "right" way to do this (insofar as there is a
 "right" way) is for Achievements to bail out of its theme compat layer if
 BP's theme compat is running. One notable change in BP 1.8 is that there
 is not really a reliable way to check for this, because BP unsets its
 internal "is theme compat active?" flag very early in its own loop, making
 it unavailable to nested content:

 As a data point, other plugins are *not* having the same duplication
 problem. BuddyPress Docs, for instance, does not duplicate member template
 content, hooked to 'bp_template_content' in members/single/plugins.php

 DJPaul or jjj, I know this is an incomplete picture, but maybe it's enough
 to spark an idea with one of you. Any thoughts? (a) Is this in fact a
 regression? (b) If so, is it going to affect any plugins other than
 Achievements, which is the only one (that I know of) that had such an
 advanced theme compat layer? (c) If it's only Achievements, can we just
 ask Paul to make the necessary mods, rather than playing around more with
 BP's theme compat load order?
