Currently almost all parameters do NOT cascade down the sequence

Thus to have this 1 take affect you need to either
- set it completely course wide
- set it at the lowest possible folder
(Meanign if you have
-> container.page
    -> problem_set1.sequence
         -> problem1.problem
         -> problem2.problem
    -> problem_set2.sequence
         -> problem1.problem
         -> problem2.problem

You need to set the maxtries for both problem_set1.sequence and
problem_set2.sequence for all problems to be affected

This should occur. Can you double check that the student is enrolled?
And not currently Expired from the course. (Main Menu -> ENRL -> View
Class List)

If they are in the course class lsit as a 'Currently Enorlled' student
can you send me (guy@albertelli.com) the username of the student that
this is occuring for?
