I was 2% of the way through indexing a column family with solr, and decided to see what would happen if I killed the node. The answer is that after restarting, solr believes it is still indexing, and won't accept further reload commands as a consequence. Where is the "indexing" status stored, and how do I reset it so that I can do a new reload?

What version of DSE are you using?
the Admin UI "indexing" status (and related double-indexing prevention) is just a visual helper: you can always have full control over your reload/reindex operations by issuing an Admin HTTP request like this one:
curl -X POST "http://host:port/solr/admin/cores?action=RELOAD&name=your.core&reindex=true"
