Outlook 2007 calendar search not showing all items in shared calendar.

How do I enable all Calendar items to be searchable in Outlook 2007?

A secretary in a law office has rights to view the Attorney's Calendar.  When she does a search within the calendar, only the items that she (secretary) created appear in the results.  

So far, I've tried the CLEANVIEWS switch, running the office repair option, and re-indexing.  Search results still omit all items that she did not create.  Oddly, they (the calendar entries) are clearly visible on the shared calendar.

Please help.

Rebuilding the profile seems to have solved the issue.  However, it is taking quite a while to index the items on this (Vista)computer.  I had the secretary work on a another computer (WinXP) where she never had never logged into (new profile) and Outlook's search results in a particular shared calendar showed EVERYTHING (items dated back to 2006).  The profile on the Vista computer has only gone back a few months (I'm assuming because it is still indexing).  If the profiles on each computer are both new, why is one (the XP machine) already able to find ALL shared calender items?
