 dcavins - Right, I forgot that we handled this more elegantly in

 The crux of the issue here is 'user_has_access':
 /bp-friends-loader.php?marks=156#L139 When this is set to false,
 `bp_core_new_nav_item()` will simply bail before registering the nav item
 or the screen callback
 core-buddybar.php?marks=84,85#L79 A more elegant solution may be to detect
 that this is a page that requires a logged-in user, and to redirect to wp-
 login.php as appropriate. I'm not sure if this would work generally,
 though, since 'user_has_access' is used in a number of different ways
 throughout BP and BP plugins.

 This is also closely related to #6301 and the intertwingledness of the way
 that nav items and screen callbacks are registered. If the two were
 separate, the puzzle would be easier to solve.

 In the meantime, I don't see any harm in going with my suggestion
 https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/6307#comment:2. This is a
 targeted fix that shouldn't have any broader implications.
