This seems to be a bug when the crawler search the user profiles in MOSS 2007. When crawled, user profiles with a SPS-HireDate in the months of January, April, August and December will be detected, but a full-text (SQL) search returns those profiles
without the HireDate field.
User profiles with HireDates in other months work correctly, returning the HireDate in the search. And changing the month of a problematic user profile also fixes the problem.
This problem is also reflected in the fact that while we have 499 user profiles using the SPS-HireDate property, the managed property page from the search section only has 350 items with the HireDate property.
We're running MOSS 2007 32bit with SP2 with an English language base and the Spanish language pack. I'd considered date format problems, but I can't imagine how some months would work, while others wouldn't.
