In addition to those steps, it seems I forgot to migrate the content types:

... and to migrate the site:

One I did that, the site was fully upgraded to 2.5.5.  However, I still have
the same problems as before:
- Can't create new Folders, or edit Folder descriptions.
- Raw variable strings appear in portal messages that confirm the creation
of new objects.


I didn't see a mention of those issues in the release notes, but I hoped
from Steve's reply that the upgrade would address them.  Should it have?
