Subject Performance issues with facets and filter query exclusions

I was doing some performance testing on facet queries and I noticed

the query time jumped to something like 5000 ms.


I noticed that the drop in performance happened any time I had a filter
query tag match up with a facet exclusion. If I had a query where the tags
and exclusions differ, like the following...


... then performance was fine. Any time a "tag" and "ex" parameter matched,
I would see the drop in performance.

all. Running the multiple separate facet queries ended up being much faster
than using the filter query exclusion feature.

I wasn't able to find anything on the bug tracker about this. Does anyone
have any hints about what could be causing this? I'm on Solr 4.4 and have
not tested newer versions, so I don't know if this problem has been
