Matthew: did you ever resolve your issue?

I'm not an expect on the distributed searching code, but there's no reason
I know of why a basic "OR" type query should fail just becuase you're
using hte shards param.

Are you sure both of your solr instances (solr-archway and solr-portal) 
are using the same schema.xml and solrconfig.xml ?
