That's not what the instructions say to do (unless they are wrong, and I would expect that to have been reported by now).
You should be writing to /dev/sde (without the 1). This is the "whole disk" or card, in ths case. The image contains all the disk data including the partition table and the contents of /dev/sde1 and /dev/sde2 (in your case).
You are correct... I actually discovered that a few minutes before I read your post!! It's tough doing this stuff at age 75 <g>, I was smarter some years ago!
Induction on two pieces of data: It appears that with the Dec. 16th version of wheezy, the video does not come up in HDMI mode by default as it did in the July version. This was true of the downloaded image that I just burned and also of the dist-upgrade. I'd be interested if others find the same. FWIW, as I said above, I had to edit /boot/config.txt to wit:
# uncomment if hdmi display is not detected and composite is being output
That's it, I thank all who took the trouble to help an old fool!
