LightSky has been using Drupal for quite some time, but because of a lot of factors haven’t contributed as much during that time as we probably should.  Mike and I implemented a philosophical change about a year ago to make a concerted effort to give back.  It has been small steps for us though, we are a small organization and in a growing phase, so our resources to give back have been limited. ...

Ofcourse the culprit could be your call to user_save() somewhere. The actual issue might be, you are passing global user object instead of full account object.

Search API has been my go-to module for building search pages for the last two years. Even if the client doesn't ask for anything fancy, I still download and install Search API, use Database Search for the index and Views for the page.
