I'm a SharePoint consultant in Calgary, Canada. Most of the work I do involves using SharePoint as a tool to support business processes.

comment “The server returned a non-specific error” when Grouping in a DataView
Also check the field type - is it having trouble grouping on this type? Start real time logging with the ULS Viewer on the server (archive.msdn.microsoft.com/ULSViewer). Then go into SPD and apply your grouping. Go back to the logs after this and there's a chance you'll at least get a stack trace that'll help you get to the bottom of it.

comment Get list of web parts on the client-side
I had some help from the IE Developer Toolbar. In the html snippet above, it was the value of the id attribute that made it a good choice. Glad it helped.

comment SharePoint view in grouping items by the first letter of the Title field
With the potentially large number of items and the usability issues around grouping - would using a connected Text Filter Web Part or a Search Results web part (only searching on the given field) help the users out more?

I don't think LinkFilename is a supported type for calculated columns.

How many items will there (eventually) be in the list?

Does applying sorting to the title field help with the issue?

comment Approving items in a folder
Are you opposed to using columns and fields with views? Are you trying to keep the folder paradigm so that users feel more like they're in a traditional file share?

Is there a javascript error? Let me know if you have problems with the path (selector). Good luck.
