I would post your problem in the forum. On both my powerbook and my tower, I cannot find files using spotlight that are in other user's homes.

Make sure the permissions on home directories are "700" so only the owner can access or list files therein. Also make sure you haven't set "Ignore ownership on this volume" with Get Info on the volume (usually only applies to multiple-drive systems).
