Not that hard actually. You only need to remove the privileged flag from 
a user that owns a ticket. One might do that when removing the Enabled 
flag and being overzealous.

Now, whether a _simple_ search should actually find the tickets this 
user owns is debatable. I can confirm that right now, it doesn't, but I 
guess you knew that, since there's an explicit test in the search code.

And on a side note: If that user didn't have the OwnTicket Right 
(because he was SuperUser), you even need a small patch to be able to 
select him as Owner in the Query Builder (which does find the tickets).

Best regards,
