[LON-CAPA-users] help! - fixed itself

I had a student log into lon-capa and the course seems to be functioning
fine for them.  It looks like it is just my student account that was
misbehaving (showing the course as empty).  And about 45 minutes later, I
logged in again, and it looks like everything is fine now.  I think what
happened was I forgot to re-initialize the course when I made the folder
that I was going to copy the new problems into, and that confused
LON-CAPA when I copied them in.

But, unless someone (Todd?) fixed something, it looks like LON-CAPA just
needs some time to sort itself out if you do this.
