Yonik Seeley commented on LUCENE-736:

Great investigations Doron!
Personally I'm more concerned with (1) than (2).  Was the fix for one issue more responsible
for the performance loss than the other?

with slopy phrase search and scoring.

> I.e. document = A B D C E , query = "B C B" would not find this document (as expected),
but query "B C B"~2 would find it. 
> I think that no matter how large the slop is, this document should not be a match.
> 2) A document containing both orders of a query, symmetrically, would score differently
for the queru and for its reveresed form.
> I.e. document = A B C B A would score differently for queries "B C"~2 and "C B"~2, although
it is symmetric to both.
> I will attach test cases that show both these problems and the one reported by Yonik
in 697.
