I've asked the author of the Spider engine - Kentoku Shiba - and he
thinks that these queries don't stay indefinitely, but are just very
slow. They would be slow because, let me quote

  ... this case needs BKA join for better performance. But current table
  partition feature of official MariaDB does not support MRR well. In
  the other hand, there is a patched version of MariaDB that supports
  MRR well with partition feature. I will contribute this patch to
  official MariaDB.

meanwhile you can try the patched version of MariaDB (as prepared by
Kentoku) with BKA and see if that helps:

  binary for Linux x86_64

Hmm, judging from the name this includes Spider 3.2, Vertical Partitioning
engine 1.1 and Mroonga 4.05h
