Would the row which has IndexingStatus=4 also create a document with the
same uniqueKey which you would delete using the transformer? If yes, that
can explain what is happening and you can avoid that by adding a $skipDoc
flag in addition to the $deleteDocById flag.

I know this is a basic question but you are using Solr 1.4, aren't you?
