I apologize, please strike that post from the record and put me down as major doofus. I had hidden them via CSS.
Seriously…I should take a pay cut.

The error was from a Private Messaging plugin (note: not a private forums plugin).
I have the default Akismet & Bozo plugins installed, and also the “Use Display Name” (which just changes your username to your nicename) and BBPrivate Messaging Plugin (as mentioned above) plugins installed. Removing them does not allow me to see the forums content either.
