Elaine and Stephen, I agree--this isn't good!  In our catalog (also 3.16),
if you click one of the facets from a 400 field, it does return correct
results based on the 100 field--e.g., if you do a search on Sea Poetry:

And you click on the facet "Sinbad," (a 400 in the aut record) it will
return the two results by "Dingle, Aylward Edward," (which is the 100 field
in that aut record), but the user will have no idea why--there's no
evidence that your search has been redirected due to your selecting a "see
from" reference.

I also hope that facets are not displayed from aut record 4XX fields in
future versions--maybe the facets should only be generated from aut record
1XX fields, since those (ideally) match used headings in the catalog, and
facets should never be generated from 4XX or 5XX fields in aut records.
