Essentially, fc is out then.

I looked into this some more this morning.  I noticed the java process was doing
a lot of I/O as shown in Process Explorer.  For the frequent_word it read about 
180MB, for ottomotor is was about seven times as much, ~ 1,200 MB.

jconsole didn’t show anything unusual according to our more experienced Java 
experts here.  Nor was the machine swapping.

Is it possible to screw up an index such that this sort of faceting leads to
constant reading of the index?  Something like full table scans in a db?
