this is because the filter could not be cached?

Since i know it should not cached, is there any way to make sure it does 
not purge useful stuff from the cache?

2 is fine if I was dealing with points, but this is a region, so i need 
to deal with a whole region (N,S,E,and W).

do range queries operate on the whole index, or can they be limited 
first?  That is, if i can throw out half the docs with a simple 
TermQuery, does the range still have to go through everything?
