Part of the bp_modify_page_title() function. The only way I'm seeing this be a potential issue is via either a filter on the bloginfo hook or if a user has no set the blogname option in their General settings.

Regardless of method to provide an empty string, may not be a bad idea to change

$title_tag_compatibility = (bool) ( ! empty( $_wp_theme_features['title-tag'] ) || strstr( $title, $blogname ) );


$title_tag_compatibility = (bool) ( ! empty( $_wp_theme_features['title-tag'] ) || ( ! empty( $blogname ) && strstr( $title, $blogname ) ) );

Will diff it up when I can fetch a fresh copy of master.

Looks good!

Note: for next time, we could use something like $blogname && strstr( $title, $blogname ) here instead of ! empty().

empty is good use when accessing array properties (maybe class properties, too) that may not be set or just empty, because it basically does a isset($value['what']) && $value['what'] != null (I don't know how to find language constructs in the PHP C++ source, so I can't back this up, but this is what my mental understanding of the empty construct has always done). While in this case there's no real difference, I prefer the more succinct approach.
