I can't test it right now, but did you also try changing the source 
parameter? They will be different if you are using two independent 
stacks. That might work. The instanceID must be the same for both.

They can, but you need to make sure the text file you are writing to has 
correct permissions on the server.

Revlet file paths are local to the user's hard drive and act like 
desktop standalones. Their default directory is not on the server, it is 
the folder where the plugin is installed on the user's drive. To write 
to a server, you need to use the same techniques that you'd use for a 
remote desktop application.

Did you change the javascript in the html file? That's all it needs. 
Also make sure the source parameter is the name of your mainstack in 
both cases.
