Thanks Joel, that's it!

I had tried all sorts of variants on the search terms but somehow missed
that issue (probably because my eyes glazed over before getting to the 7.2
upgrade notes).   While we were negatively impacted by the change, given
the existence of a simple workaround (anybody coming across the issue in
the future: defType=lucene in your query parameters), I don't think I'd
advocate for a behavioral change.  It might be worth adding a note to the
Local Params page in the reference guide, though, as I imagine edismax is a
fairly popular defType.

cheers,

AC
