Yes I did.

Some more info:

by telnet'ing directly and issuing:
c search text pattern
* SEARCH 1208
c OK Search completed (0.003 secs).

But the same search in thunderbird return "No matches found" :(

Here are the solr logs, first search is the "c search text pattern" 
second is from thunderbird:

Feb 28, 2012 3:26:21 PM org.apache.solr.core.SolrCore execute
INFO: [] webapp=/solr path=/select 
hits=1 status=0 QTime=1

Feb 28, 2012 3:27:49 PM org.apache.solr.core.SolrCore execute
INFO: [] webapp=/solr path=/select 
hits=0 status=0 QTime=1

It seems thunderbird is only searching in the body and not the header 
unlike the "c search text" method and that the pattern was found in the 
header of some random email. So none of the two method is working when 
searching in the body of the emails but work for the headers (???).

fts_solr module seems to be correctly launched:

[root at server log]# grep -R mail_plugins /usr/local/etc/dovecot/ | grep -v \#
/usr/local/etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-mail.conf:mail_plugins = autocreate fts 
fts_solr quota
/usr/local/etc/dovecot/conf.d/15-lda.conf:  mail_plugins = $mail_plugins 

[root at server log]# grep fts /usr/local/etc/dovecot/conf.d/90-plugin.conf
   fts = solr
   fts_solr = url= break-imap-search

Don't know where to search :(
