 Just wanted to chime in here. I realize that Frederick hasn't provided
 more information about this yet, but I am fairly certain that I'm facing
 the exact same issue. I am using BuddyPress 2.1.1, WordPress 4.0, and
 Memcached for caching.

 As Fredrick suggested, I have also potentially traced this back to a
 caching issue. We have a custom members loop and display xprofile data for
 each user. We have the correct data the first time loading the page after
 clearing the cache, but after the first load (ie when using data from the
 cache), anyone that has an empty field inherits the data from the previous
 person to have filled in that field.

 To replicate, you should be able to have 3 users and create a few basic
 profile fields. If you fill in profile fields for one user and not the
 others, when displaying xprofile field components in the members loop you
 should see the duplicated values for the users that have blank entries for
 those fields.

 If I comment out [https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/browser/trunk/bp-
 xprofile/bp-xprofile-classes.php?rev=8298#L326 line 326-336] (essentially
 removing the cache) everything works as expected.

 I'm working on finding a better solution, but wanted to post here in case
 anyone else has faced this issue or has an existing workaround. I will
 update this post when I have more information.
