I guess something with the German translation
went wrong. The translation of "the solution"
is "die Lösung".
"Unwort" is a "taboo word" with a rather negative
connotation. In the last years some organisations
elected the "Unwort" of the year:

Maybe that solution was mixed up with
"Endlösung" which means the "final solution",
extermination of all jews by the Nazis.
