I never use the blank line from the external table to add records.
I use globals fields et a add bouton or script to add this to the external tables.
Maybe you could use this ?

If you are adding records in a portal you automatically lock the child AND the parent record. So don't use this construct for data entry. Just take the user to the context of the child record and let them create records there.
