Admin/search user can't read a list with view permissions set

description

In central admin I've selected Application management > Manage web applications > Sharepoint - 80 > User Policy and I see that my search account has "Full Read, Full Control".

When I login as that user I can see most of the site, even parts that don't mention it in permissions. But the list I have setup view permissions on gives me an access denied error when I try to access it as the search user.

I have viseversa mode on and I've tried with and without adding the search user as being able to see each view. The permissions work as expected for every user except the search user.

I have tried removing all the view permissions and that allows the search user to view this list, so the problem is definitely with the view permissions.
