I do have the setting mentioned by DoctorOhh down to 3 fields
Ah, thanks for reminding me of that! I forgot about that one. I'd had that turned off for almost a year to force myself to remember to use column lookup names, so when I misspelled a lookup name in search box, or forgot to use the # for a custom column, results took a long time while I couldn't do anything else. So I just turned it on, and limited it to authors, series, title, and #people (alternate author names). Now recovery from those mistakes is much faster!
