I believe the most significant problem you were experiencing is that  
the action of flattening your image results in a newly created layer  
and all the original layers disappear; i.e., the original "Drawable"  
value that you were using in your 'file-jpeg-save' call was no longer  
valid after the script flattened the image.

It is not possible to perform step 3e) --  scripts can only close  
images which they themselves open or create. Images that are opened or  
created from the menus must be closed from the menus.

The updated script will result in the image being marked as saved, so  
that closing the image does not generate a warning about losing  
changes. I am not entirely comfortable about doing this because not  
ALL image changes are saved with the JPEG format and closing your  
image after running the script will result in the loss of some  
information -- e.g., any channels or paths you've created, as well as  
the degradation of the picture owing to JPEG's lossy compression.  
Nonetheless, given your work flow, it seems appropriate as long as you  
remain aware of this limitation. If you should prefer to still be  
warned about losing data then remove the line which calls
