I think it should be fixed too. But lets do the work to fix it right,
otherwise the bug will resurface again and again.
There is no failure in LUCENE-3998: I just did some of the work and stopped
when I ran out of time.

Lets fix it correctly and avoid hacks. Otherwise its impossible to know
really that the release artifacts for facets are correct.
