 Dave posted in the forum thread about this as well:


 From what I can gleam from the screenshots, Dave activated BuddyPress on
 an existing WordPress install that might have used a customized
 registration or member management process in the past.  This process
 created user accounts with the email address as the username.

 This would explain the email address showing up on the user profile (and
 recorded as the `user_nicename` in the WordPress `wp_users` table) and how
 the second subscriber user account is correct.

 Dave, you could try using the following snippet in `wp-config.php` to see
 if this might fix older user accounts:


 This would use the `user_login` field instead of the `user_nicename` field
 for the `@USERNAME` on your user profile and URL.  It's possible that your
 previous member management plugin only used the email address for the
 `user_nicename` field.  If so, this might fix your issue, but probably
 will not.

 I say this is a wontfix based on the customized nature of the install.
