The former was more important to me, and for continuity's sake. It's not just Maggie's "fault" the character didn't click with me in TDK, it was also a function of the script since they made Harvey so important right from the start.
I think you've hit the nail on the head here in many ways. She was just written very unsympathetically to me so I disliked her for that. With her sour personality and Maggie unattractive ( to me) looks I felt her dead trauma was undermined. Switching actors or actresses in the middle of a continuing story is always an uphill battle for me anyway.
