Thanks for replying.
I ended up going to the apple store and the techs there were able to fix it. I didn't understand the details but the process involved rebooting and deleting a preferences file related to spotlight, then rebuilding the index.
The problem no longer exists, so this thread can be closed.

They likely nuked the Spotlight plist file in the Library folder (plist files are the Mac OS' way of doing preference files).
In general, deleting a plist file and then rebooting will cause the plist file to be re-created. So, if the plist file is corrupted, then this is usually the way to fix it.
