They had different names on the file system (like TS1 and TS2) while I was in the middle of fiddling, and I neglected to change the name of one to the original.

Once that happens you can move it to a sub-folder and all will be better. Make sure you clean up the multiple copies and naming before you do anything else.
I tried this, although I initially did not remove the the other versions with strange names. Then I tried this a number of times. Still get the same message.
FWIW, I have frequently done this (having multiple versions of TS) without running into Sparkle issues. Not since having a 10.13 system, though.
