Buddy Press Template Pack - To Use or Not to Use??? That is the question...

I was using a theme created by Pagelines called Platforms Pro which required the plugin "Buddypress Template Pack" in order to properly use Buddypress.

However, I have since started to test using WPMU themes and notice that the Buddypress Template Pack causes a conflict with WPMU BP compatible themes. If the BP Template Pack is activated while using a WPMU BP theme, the screen turns white and causes an error. The only way to fix the problem is to deactivate the BP Template Pack. Is this normal? Do I need to use the BP Template pack in order to use BP, or do all WPMU BP themes run effectively with out the BP Template Pack?

Any insight is much appreciated!
