 Thanks for figuring out the culprit. I've tested, and can confirm your
 finding. However, I don't think this is something we can properly address
 at the moment.

 WP SEO's page title generation occurs after BuddyPress', and because WP
 SEO doesn't have any special treatment for BP, all the BP screens look
 like regular WordPress Pages to WP SEO.

 We could move our `wp_title` function so that it runs after WP SEO's, but
 we'd have exactly the same problem if some other late-running plugin were
 to do something similar with the page title in the future.

 For the benefit of anyone finding this ticket in the future, as of BP 2.1,
 BP uses Pages behind-the-scenes to help render its content. This has the
 side affect of being fragile and prone to being incompatible with other
 plugins that do specific things when WordPress loads a page. In the
 future, we'll be moving BuddyPress to using rewrite rules, which should go
 a long way towards smoothing out some of these difficulties (thought I
 suspect this particular one may remain).
