after changing solid to false and back to true again, the shape get recomputed.
It then become a solid in my version.
OS: Debian GNU/Linux 7.4 (wheezy)
Platform: 64-bit
Version: 0.14.3140 (Git)
Branch: piecewise-bezier
Hash: d658bc6851a2611bd08b1c4a9aee1fc38628cc9a
Python version: 2.7.3
Qt version: 4.8.2
Coin version: 3.1.3
SoQt version: 1.5.0
OCC version: 6.7.0

Instead of using Part/Extrude you should use PartDesign/Pad as it assumes that you always want to create a solid.
BTW: You did not provide complete FreeCAD version information

Using the old 0.13.1828 build on Windows shows the same behaviour that the solid fails -- but the pad works. This version uses OCC 6.3. Using OCC 6.6 in a newer version works.

So, to solve this issue for older OCC versions we can move the extra checks we do for the pad to the extrude function.

I reckon this can be closed? Please reopen if it should stay open

The extrude feature should be ironed a bit so that it works as reliably as the pad. Also if the solid option is checked it should support faces with holes.
