Hmmm, you really shouldn't have to do this. What have you tried to
figure out why the strange node isn't getting cleaned up? Is there
anything in the Solr logs that might help?

Is it a Windows machine? Some of the delete semantics for Windows can
leave things around. What happens if you restart the server and
continue indexing, do some of the tlogs disappear (the hypothesis here
is that somehow the files are being held open).
