You could try literally waiting (press 't'), which some other people seem to suggest (maybe it triggers the AI or something, not sure). I've had them follow me to other cities - I don't know if they need to travel all the way back if they tried to find you somewhere else, but waiting for a bit might help them catch up.
Unfortunately I've not played the thieves quest, as I'm too good so I don't know the answer. If you don't find the answer here, I'd ask this question in the Bethesda Oblivion forums
I do remember a similar type of setup for "The Collector" quest where if you find and sell an Alyeid statue, a collector of such statues sends his man to ask you to visit him where he has an offer regarding selling him more of these statues. They represent quite a pay off as compared to selling the statues to regular vendors.
So when I sold my statue, I had to stand around for about 5 minutes for this person to appear and make the offer. I've read online if you leave suddenly and go to another town, this NPC must travel to that city to find you which can take quite some time (don't ask me how much).
Sorry Atticus but this really does not have much to do with your quest, but if you've not done The Collector, you can find a statue in the ruin right outside the Imperial City sewer (that you leave in the beginning of the game) across the lake.

Level 10 is a very awkward age.
