Solr looks up configSets in the wrong directory

      I tried the small tutorial on http://heliosearch.org/solr-4-8-features/ to create "Named Config Sets" based on the Solr example shipped with Solr 4.8.1 (like it's done in the tutorial, same problem with 4.8.0).
      Creating a new core with a configSet seems to work (directory 'books' and 'books/core.properties' are created correctly).

      But loading the new core does not work:

      67446 [qtp25155085-11] INFO  org.apache.solr.handler.admin.CoreAdminHandler  core create command configSet=generic&name=books&action=CREATE
      67452 [qtp25155085-11] ERROR org.apache.solr.core.CoreContainer  Unable to create core: books
      org.apache.solr.common.SolrException: Could not load configuration from directory C:\dev\solr-4.8.1\example\configsets\generic
              at org.apache.solr.core.ConfigSetService$Default.locateInstanceDir(ConfigSetService.java:145)
              at org.apache.solr.core.ConfigSetService$Default.createCoreResourceLoader(ConfigSetService.java:130)
              at org.apache.solr.core.ConfigSetService.getConfig(ConfigSetService.java:58)
              at org.apache.solr.core.CoreContainer.create(CoreContainer.java:554)

      It seems like Solr looks up the config sets in the wrong directory:
      C:\dev\solr-4.8.1\example\configsets\generic (in the log above) instead of
      C:\dev\solr-4.8.1\example\solr\configsets\generic (like stated in the tutorial and the documentation on https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/solr/Config+Sets)

      Moving the configsets directory one level up (into 'example') will work.
      But as of the documentation (and the tutorial) it should be located in the solr home directory.

      In case I'm completely wrong and everythings works as expected, how can the configsets directory be configured?
      The documentation on https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/solr/Config+Sets mentions a "configurable configset base directory", but I can't find any information on the web.

      Another thing: If it would work as I expect, the references <lib dir="../../../contrib/extraction/lib" regex=".*\.jar" /> etc. in solr-4.8.1/example/solr/configsets/generic/conf/solrconfig.xml should get one more "../" added, I guess (missing in the tutorial).
