      Description

      We've seen a fuzzy search end up breaking the automaton and getting reported as a server error. This usage should be improved by
      1) reporting as a client error, because it's similar to something like too many boolean clauses queries in how an operator should deal with it
      2) report what field is causing the error, since that currently must be deduced from adjacent query logs and can be difficult if there are multiple terms in the search

      This trigger was added to defend against adversarial regex but somehow hits fuzzy terms as well, I don't understand enough about the automaton mechanisms to really know how to approach a fix there, but improving the operability is a good first step.
