Comment (by boonebgorges):

 > other than changing the type of these profile field entries to tidy it
 up, and moving the code from one component to another, this doesn't do
 anything? (e.g. it doesn't fix any problem)?

 Incorrect. The problem is this: `bp_core_new_user_activity()` (in the
 Members component) creates an `xprofile` activity item. If this happens
 when the xprofile component is disabled, the proper activity action
 callback won't exist (`bp_xprofile_format_activity_action_new_member()`).
 So an empty string gets saved in the database, and an empty activity item
 is displayed when the page is rendered.

 The proper fix is to move the whole works into the Members component, but
 this is more than I think we should do for 2.1. imath's minimal fix will
 at least keep the blank items from appearing in these cases.
