The root cause is that, apparently, in some older version, we *did*
index an empty field, which at some point later had already been fixed
by someone else. I verified that this empty field was in fact present
in the stored fields for the document before the index was migrated to
Lucene 5.

So the only obvious difference then is between Lucene 3 indexing no
tokens for this field, and Lucene 5 indexing a single empty token?

I have ended up putting in a migration to delete the spurious empty
term in the postings as well as deleting the empty field from all the
documents where it's present.
