The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 6.2.4 [K 6.2.4] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 4.3.x/4.4.x/5.0.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 6.1 / K 6.2 and issues discovered during the last development stages of K 6.2

Your problem is actually more of a Joomla menu issue than anything else. It's fairly easily solved by removing all your existing menu items and using the Create Menu facility on the Kunena contol panel.
Your other problems, seem to stem from the way that you are trying to use SEF URLs. I suggest that you read Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) in the Wiki to get your Joomla site in shape.
Yes, that's what everyone says. Setting up SEO is not as simple as making sure that two radio buttons are selected in the Joomla Global Configuration. Setting up SEO in Joomla also requires another important other step, too: making sure that you have a working .htaccess file in the root folder of your site.
I have the following SEO values
* Search Engine Friendly URLs: Yes
* Use Apache mod_rewrite: Yes
* Add suffix to URLs: No.
A lot of people tell us that they have a working .htaccess file in the root directory of their site. Quite often time they are mistaken. The standard .htaccess file for Joomla-built websites (it's shipped with Joomla as htaccess.txt) for J! 1.5.22 is exactly 2773 bytes. How large is your .htaccess file?
Then you are either using something other than the "standard" Joomla-supplied .htaccess file or you have customised it in some way by adding extra .htaccess directives. I don't "speak" .htaccess-language. I wouldn't know how. I just use the standard Joomla .htaccess and SEO works fine for me (and works fine for the majority of Joomla websites built on Unix). If you need something different then that's OK but that's something you have obviously thought about, researched and implemented because the standard Joomla .htaccess file may not fit your specific requirements.

My suggestion is to try the standard .htaccess file and see if it solves your problems of redirection. Another way to fix your problems is to make use of cPanel (or whatever tools your webhost provided you) to transform your site into a sub-domain and you will probably find that the standard .htaccess file will work for you.
For instance, let's say your forum is located at mysite.com/site-folder/forum. If you transform your site into site-folder.mysite.com then your forum would be located at site-folder.mysite.com/forum (assuming you are using a standard, the standard Joomla SEO technique). That's what I would do in your situation. Does this help?
