Facets WebPart Doesn't Recognize CoreResults Scope

I have a search results pages, with a CoreResults webpart for the scope "Scope A". When I add the Facets webpart to the page, it works as intended but doesn't account for the restricted scope of the results.

So for example, I'll see this...
- Jason Coleman (50)
... when really there are only 3 documents authored by me within this scope.

I have the "scope" property set in the CoreResults webpart, which doesn't seem to be recognized by FS. If I append "&s=Scope%20A" to the URL, the facets are restricted to the scope. It works! However, I'd have to update a bunch of links to have that "&s=" appended.

I tried to update all of my links to include the "&s=..." but Sharepoint can't handle this URL all the time. For instance, if I'm at ".../searchresults.aspx?s=Scope%20A" and I do a search, SP takes me to ".../searchresults.aspx?s=Scope%20?k=searchterm"... which is an invalid URL (It doesn't recognize the first ? and use a & as it should.)

I would appreciate any help or direction someone here might have. Thanks and let me know if you need more details.
