Is there a fix for when the quick release screw loosens up more often than it should?

Try adding a small plastic washer.

Is the spring there and(or) is it worn-out or broken.
 The spring should be between the bakelite head-plate and the inner metal ring rivited to the inside of said plate, invisible until the two'er seperated(broken?).
Should act like the springs in Penn spool bushings and keep enough pressure on the unit to keep it from unscrewing.
Other than the plastic washer fix, you could try non-hardening thread-lock compound. I might try and file a wider gap on a ss lock-washer, push it in around the screw shaft, then squeeze the gap closed so it stays put.
