The real main differecne seems coming from "diffconfig.xml" 

When I put yours, Solr delete (!) schema.xml and create a
"manage-schema" and starts complaining about useless types (tdates,
booleans, etc..) that are not needed for Mail fileds 

When I put mine (from standard distribution of Arch), it keeps things as
they are (yeah !), does not complains about those useless types and
startup properly. 

I attach my diffconfig 

But these are the configurations that one should adjust as per his/her
own use. 

The main problem is : After some time of indexing from Dovecot, Dovecot
returns errors (invalid SID, etc...) and Solr return "out of range
indexes" errors
