 Hi @pandraka - You haven't given precise instructions to reproduce. But
 given this sentence: " I see the hidden group when I click on groups" I'm
 guessing that you are visiting the URL `/groups/`, ie the top-level group
 directory. By default, the filter on this page is 'All Groups'. When
 viewing the All Groups filter as a non-admin user, hidden groups do not
 appear, even if you are a member of the group. However, you can see these
 groups by clicking 'My Groups' (which should make an AJAX request to fetch
 your groups), or by visiting `/members/[you]/groups/`.

 Does this correctly explain your issue? If so, it's not a new bug, but is
 the way that BP has always behaved.
