    Linked headings in full view with parentheses

    When a query contains two or more words + parentheses ( ) e.g: Gone with the wind (motion picture) is parsed by mistake to (Gone with the wind) AND "Gone with the wind" OR motion picture.
    In such a situation, many results are retrieved - some of these records having only the term "motion picture" in them, while they are not related at all to Gone with the wind.

    This occurs most often when clicking on a subject link from the full view of a record.

    Facets in Primo are much more reliable for returning truly related records.
