Right. Because there are three relations involved in the condition,
it's evaluation is delayed till all three of them are joined, thus
increasing the sizes of minion joins. With this change, the size of
minion joins reduces. Since this is an all INNER join, splitting the
condition should be fine.

Yes, that's a lot of improvement. I can reproduce similar results on my laptop.
