i had the same problem and found that this procedure works for me:

--after decomposing, i go back to the original (or duplicate) image, do 
the edge, levels, and gaussian blur things;
--select all and copy the selection to the clipboard;
--then undo everything until the normal color image is visible again;

--now change to the decomposed image;
--highlight the "L" layer;
--go to channels and add a new one;
--select the new channel and paste the selection still in the cliboard;
--go to layers and anchor the floating selection;
--go back to channels and create a selection from the new channel;
--switch off visibility of the new channel and deselect it, selecting the 
original ones;
--go to layers, make sure "L" is selected, and apply unsharp mask;
--select colors->components (or whatever it's called)->recompose;
--close the (previously) decomposed image and save changes;

now the original image has the smart sharpening applied. if you don't 
like the result, you can undo and start over.
