Yes, that does not work, unfortunately. Please clean up any leftovers from this transaction. Sorry :-(

Two possibilities:

1) Export the folder to an author space, publish it as a sequence, and then
   a. import the whole sequence
   b. import from the sequence into a new folder

2) Clone the course and then delete the folders you don't want.
