After clicking through the error, everything appears to be in the right
place.  I wouldn't know if, say, problems from a chapter were missing,

I was the cloner, and the course did finish the cloning process.  The course
is four chapters averaging about nine problems per chapter.

When logging into the previous course I get the same message, just with a
different course hash.  Same missing sequence, though.

default.sequence:<resource id="8"
type="finish" title="Chemistry"></resource>

I ran

| grep default_1087484056

And it pointed to a chemistry resource that does not exist in either the
course I have created or the one from the previous year.  Under Course
Contents it is a [+] jigsaw puzzle hierarchy/icon with no resources under
the [+], and under Course Editor it is just an empty folder.  I will ask the
instructor about this resource.

I have never had an issue with uploading a CSV, so perhaps it is just a case
of not waiting long enough.  His classes are usually fairly small, but
perhaps he has a few extra students this year.
