It doesn't have anything to do with analyzers, it has to do with the
Lucene query parser that Solr uses.  A minus sign means "must not
appear", so
q=-1861807411 means "1861807411" must not appear in the default search field.

Try escaping the "-" by enclosing the search term in quotes, or
backslash escaping it.
