I just took another look at this since we have another consortium that wants to start using search filter groups in 2.3 and has actually considered disabling facets so that they can get the added flexibility of defining their formats with search filter groups. I would love to see them move forward with both search filter groups and facets, so I'm hoping there might be some way to resolve this in 2.3. Although it appears to work properly in 2.4, our preference is to get the search filter groups working properly sooner rather than later.

I don't have much to add, but did want to mention something that I hadn't noticed during the initial discussion.

Although it appeared as if the:|personal[Glass%2C+Philip.]+filter_group_entry(12)

URL worked above, it really didn't. There are results, but they are no longer being limited by format filter. If I do what Mike suggested and replace the "facet=author%7Cpersonal%5BGlass%2C%20Philip.%5D" portion of the query with "author%7Cpersonal%5BGlass%2C+Philip.", then I always successfully return the results no matter what the order of the parameters. Actually, I didn't test every conceivable order, but I was able to insert the search filter group parameter into any part of the URL.
