members navigation in buddypress shows "No members"

WPMU2.86+BP1.1.3+bb102+bp social theme.

This is weird -- i 'm getting "No members found. Members must fill in at least one piece of profile data to show in member lists." message when clicking on the 2 page, or subsequent pages of the navigation (/wp-load.php?upage=2 or 3 or 4 etc).

When I changed this line in members-loop.php to higher numbers; i am able to see all the users!

<?php if ( bp_has_site_members( 'type=active&per_page=200' ) ) : ?>

Similar experience when tested on BP fun theme and even bp default theme.

Have disabled all plugin one by one.. but still the same. Any idea how to fix this?
