Unable to view/edit profile if username contains space

I noticed when trying to edit my own wordpress.org profile that I just get a white screen of death. I'm not sure if this has been reported before or not (I ran a trac search but didn't find anything).

I can view my forum profile here fine:

The link from the trac to my profile works as well (without slugifying my name and replacing the space with a dash):

However if I click "edit" from that last page, I'm redirected to this page which is a white screen:

JJJ and I have finally had the chance to go through all of this.

BuddyPress used to use user_login in URLs, despite user_nicename being correct. We've now switched the profiles to use user_nicename, and we're redirecting any user_login cases to user_nicename.

Additionally, we've removed /users/. So, http://profiles.wordpress.org/users/$name/profile/edit/ will redirect to profiles.wordpress.org/$name. From there, /profile/edit/ will work.
