Description

BP forums extend WPDB to use the shared DB info. This is done using the old PHP4 style constructor for the wpdb class, which is dropped in WP 3.2. http://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/browser/tags/1.2.8/bp-forums/bp-forums-bbpress.php#L144 This means that the forums crash BP installs on the 1.2 branch/WP 3.2

The solution is to use wpdb::construct() instead. Checking in a fix in a moment.

(NB this is already done on trunk, in r4211)
