causes error when groupedby and terms=True

Issue #294 resolved
created an issue

When a is used with groupedby and terms= True causes an error (see in the code segment)

The actual query does not matter, the facet can be one or many, simple fieldname or FieldFacet(maptype= Count). This was not present in 2.3.2.

In the code segment command1, command2 generate the same error, whereas command3 generates a slightly different one. Is it that TermCollector and FacetCollector cannot be combined, i.e the groupedby and terms cannot both be specified?
