Comment (by imath):

 OOps i made a confusion with another ticket, this one is about the member
 search issue with '&'. Sorry. Well the problem also exist in activity
 search ;)

 Anyway, after looking at it. The member search is a bit more complex as in
 {{{bp_legacy_theme_ajax_querystring()}}} a querystring is built from the
 posted data. And the problem is that when a search is containing '&', it's
 parsed like if there were a new query var.

 For instance (if javascript is enabled) searching for '&mp' will generate
 a query string like this :
 Then once parsed in bp_has_members(), the search terms argument is empty
 and there is a new 'mp' var

 So i suggest  5694.03.patch to try to fix this issue.
