I believe this is the culprit right here.  I counted 1576 instances of 
"OR" in the long query, which is rather a lot higher than the default 
maxBooleanClauses value of 1024.

I think that the maxBooleanClauses parameter (and its default) exist for 
good reason, probably to reduce the likelihood of resource exhaustion.  
It can't scale to many thousands or millions of clauses.

If possible, it would be a good idea to redesign so you can stay lower 
than 1024.  I construct a query like this when I do document deletes, 
and I limit it to 512 records at a time.If you can't redesign, be aware 
that you won't be able to scale indefinitely, even if you change
