Subsite Searches in SharePoint Not Working

We’ve been having a search configuration problem within SharePoint 2007 at work in which the “This Site” and “This List” search scopes available within any site haven’t been returning results, despite the fact that the global site search will very clearly return results with the exact same query. This seems to be an issue that several people have on TechNet’s Sharepoint – Search forums. A bit of digging discovers a recent post by Robin Meuré, which suggests that using https:// (SSL) might be the issue. I’m a bit dubious, but I’m running it by our system administrator to see if it even makes any sense.
