Have you tested a different template for the !JoomlaComment beta2?
I had a similar issue, which resolved itself when I changed the template.
Allocating comments to isolated categories should not be a problem. Remember that just prior to choosing categories, there is a radio button asking if it should include or exclude categories.
Fails in posting sounds weird..
The weird tags following this suggests JonusC or Daniel should perhaps take a look.
Then again, there are a few known bug issues that are being cleaned up as we speak, with a stable release due any day now.
Personally, since this is just a test for you, I would wait til the stable version gets released, try again, and then see how it works.
The beta2 version was basically the same as beta1, just with a XSS-security problem fixed. In the upgrade process however, some tags seem to have been dislodged. But since the security issue was rather critical, I assume this was a better halfway remedy than to leave it until the stable release.
Do you have a link or screen-grab showing the problem better?
The comment layout just don't show up!

My thoughts is it is the Include/Exclude radio select that Nils mentioned. Whichever of the two is chosen, the entered section/category/content ID's will have it (included or excluded from Comment display).
Also make sure you have the 'modern' template selected in Layout just for testing, it's the most compatible one.
After the Request Failed on a comment, it fills the message with the error. Could you paste the entire Comment box result after this error?
