I happen to do the same kind of search and for this I use the color labels
as temporary markers. (I don't use them otherwise, so...)

1. Left panel, tags folder, select "that tag" (the unwanted one).

2. Ctrl-A to select all images then, right panel, tags edition, apply a
color label, say red.

3. Back to left panel, select "this tag".

4. Right panel, filter folder, select Color label : none,
all "that tag" (colored red) disappear and the final is
"this tag but not that tag".

Of course, this makes sense only if you don't use color labels in a
permanent way in your images collections. Probably, for most users,
pick labels or color labels are not definitive metadata and can be
used as useful temporary tools.
