I installed bbpress with the latest wordpress version 3.8 and I receive an error:

Notice: bbp_setup_current_user was called incorrectly. The current user is being initialized without using $wp->init(). Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information. (This message was added in version 2.3.) in /public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3049

What does mean?

I was getting this error when I enabled the WebsiteDefender WordPress Security plugin

Disabling/removing this plugin solved this issue for me. That plugin calls methods like acxUtil::hideWpVersionBackend( ) without going through the WordPress add_action() which seems to be causing the issue.
