The main purpose of the private port is not to isolate users from each
other, but to isolate them from user on the public side.
Have you tested a simple ping between users connected to a common switch
connected to the private port, and of course with XP firewall off.
The functionality you describe is called "mac forced forwarding" and is
implemented in a switch to force arp requests to the router (firewall).
