When I saved the file, it changed the Show this view value (on the Edit View page) to In all folders. Once I changed that back to In the top-level folder, discussions would default back to the flat view.

First off, if you are running code to update list items outside of sharepoint, you need to have it run on the sharepoint server. Scripts that access your sharepoint web, grab elements by parsing lists, and updating items, all needs to happen serverside. It currently sounds like, since you are using javascript, that you are attempting to access this data ...

Please check if you had set any hidden fields to non-blank. If so, you need to change the option "Require that this column contains information" of them to "no".

Seems this is a bit tricky as SharePoint uses the modified by field for the poster. There's two ways I could see this working. I don't know XSL well enough to advise you on creating an XSL template and injecting it into the web part, but seeing as this is an xslt web part you presumably could do this and return whatever value you want in any area. You may ...

I think you got the answer by now. Recently I get into same problem so here is what I think.

Microsoft recognize this as an issue and at this point cannot make a fix to the edit logix for the page as it introduces substantial risk to the product stability, instead suggested to go with the workaround "The user has to explicitly checkout the page and then click Edit Page."

One approach is to add the existing field "Append-Only Comments" to your document library and activate versioning. Than you have the same behaviour like the "Comments"-Column in the "Issue Tracking"-List. Everytime a user edits an item the user can add a new comment with username and timestamp.
