changing profile in bbpress blanks the wordpress 'display name' field

  • in wordpress’ admin screens, many author names are displayed in brackets or are entirely blank.

    in the user profile area of the wordpress admin interface, these users appear to have a display name – but when checking phpmyadmin, i realise they actually have a blank display_name field in the wp_users table.

    if i save their profile in wordpress (without touching anything), the display name is set again in the database and all is fine. if i then save their profile in bbpress, their display name disappears again.

    this suggests that saving profiles via the bbpress profile page blanks out the display_name field.

    could anyone suggest how i might go about tracking down the problem?
