Mailchimp plugin conflict Buddypress 1.2.5.2

When i try to connect to mailchimp through plug-in by entering user-name and password i get the error message "Cannot Load Mailchimp". If i deactivate buddypress the plugin functions correctly. I have a up to date install of wordpress 3.0 as well as buddypress 1.2.5.2. I have tested with all other plug-ins deactivated as well. It only errors out with buddypress activated. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
