Looks like Anki's duplicate detection was confused because I had reordered the fields, and doing a "Check Database" rebuilt whatever it is, so that works now!
Another problem I'm having is when trying to use Yomichan for the first time after Chrome starts up, sometimes the popup won't appear. It seems to start working if I go into the settings and toggle something off and on again. (Currently "Activate on startup" is disabled.) I don't have much idea how to troubleshoot that.

Furthermore, if you add one of the entries to Anki as a card, you only get that entry and not any other senses. This would be okay except that you can't export the same word in future, even if it's for another sense, because the Expression field has to be unique.
If putting the sentence on the front of the card, it might be useful to add only the sense that's used in the current sentence, and have more than one card for some words. As I mentioned above, the uniqueness is checked by Anki and depends on the first field; so if you don't want words to be unique, you can move a different field (e.g. the sentence) into the first position. Also as I mentioned above, do a "Check Database" after changing the order, or the uniqueness checking might not work right for old cards.
Personally, I only put the word on the front, and there should only be one card for each word or I won't know which card I'm answering, so I really do want to put all the senses on the card.
(I'm not trying to recite a list of them - I pass the card if I know the reading and a vague idea of one of the meanings. Currently I don't add words with more than one common reading - will need to handle those separately.)
This style matches EDICT/Rikaichan grouping, i.e. group by (expression, reading).
