They should return a 404.

This should be reported upstream to bbPress

Where might I do that?
And, can we implement a fix locally in the meantime? This is pretty severe given our scale, and, I expect a bbPress fix won't happen overnight.

I also see varying behaviour on bbPress sites in the wild, so this isn't un-solveable; some 302 to the user root, some correctly return a 404.
