I've recently started work on a site which includes both BuddyPress and bbPress.

When I use the wp_list_authors() function the list returned to me links to each author's BuddyPress profile.

Disabling BuddyPress makes wp_list_authors() link to the author's bbPress forum profile page.

How can I ensure that wp_list_authors() returns links to each author's standard author pages?

If you look at the source code of wp_list_authors you will see that the link is generated by a call to get_author_posts_url. The latter has a filter that allows for modification of the url. So, you would have to find the filters in BuddyPress and bbPress and remove them.
