BlogsMU Theme signup form - Blog URL suffix text incorrect for subdomain install

I couldn't find this issue in the forums, so thought I'd ask here.

    When register.php uses site_url(), perhaps it is picking up the current domain which is

    I would think that register.php in this instance would always want to pick up the top level domain for this use case and maybe not use site_url(). Is this an issue for the BuddyPress team?
