Hmmm, a little strange that the homepage is in Y but not G.
But OK, some additional options: - Is the site accessible with and without the "www" in the URL?, - Is the page is too similar to another page on the site or on a different domain? - Is the homepage is being duplicated via mishandled aff links? - Is there an operating platform issue such that the homepage is not being handled properly, causing dup issues (especially common with ASP sites)? - Are there any redirects involved with the homepage? - Do you have a robots.txt file with instructions specific to Google? - Are there technical issues that are making the homepage difficult to crawl?

I too have had this happen. The site ranked well for the phrases I cared about and then the host went offline for 6 days. When they were back online all my pages except the homepage were re-indexed in a couple weeks. Finally after 6 weeks I went to Google help for webmasters and posted my questions, a few days later a post from a Google employee saying it had been re-crawled and all was fine. I don't know if the post caused it to be re indexed but it's worth a try.
