the pilot's chair slid back resulting in a pull on the yoke and his inability to recover the excess pitch
A gotcha on Cessnas and some other types. Make sure the pin is in the hole, used to do so by rocking the seat back and forward.

Correct. I always give an aggressive, multiple push and pulls fore and aft on the seat. I have heard the spring loaded seat locking unit snap in place while doing this.
