bbPress plugin error - cannot yet handle MBCS in html_entity_decode()!

Error with buddypress-enable.php

Even running PHP 5.2.9 when creating a topic or reply to a topic in BuddyPress it threw up the error:

"There was an error posting that topic." or "There was an error posting that reply."
They are created though.

And on the bbPress side, when I create a topic, or reply to a topic, I get:
"Warning: cannot yet handle MBCS in html_entity_decode()! in /home/sites/ on line 53"
once again, they are created tho.

Working on Trent's advise from the forum, I edited /my-plugins/buddypress-enable.php and changed line 53 from:
$post_text = html_entity_decode( $post_text, ENT_COMPAT, "UTF-8" );
$post_text = utf8_decode($post_text);

All worked....

What's the long term fix?

Unfortunately this is a bug in PHP 4:

If you're having problems, I'd recommend upgrading to PHP5 as it will fix the problem. If it becomes a major issue for a lot of people I will consider a workaround.
