BuddyPress Community Theme - Footer overflow

HI Folks,

I was trying out the BuddyPress Community Theme (I like the clean design), but I noticed that on a widescreen monitor, the footer ( blue bar ) extends to the width of the monitor instead of being contained to the same width of the other items in the theme. This looks really bad.

If I look at it in Firebug, I see that the DIV for the footer is not contained within the wrapper DIV (see attached screen shot).

Is this by design or a bug?

Thanks!
