Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When using the Convert To Comments mod tool on a post with child comments, of which the child comments have unattached users (and in this case the post had an attached owner) the unattached children break the conversion.

Example post structure (poor example but simple to follow, post ids are contrived for the purposes of an example)

Q: PostId 5001 - attached owner

A: PostId 5004 - attached owner
   C: - unattached owner
   C: - unattached owner
   C: - unattached owner
   C: - attached owner (author of 5004)

Convert To Comment
  Attach to Post?
    [X] convert child comments?

When I do this, it only copies 5004, and none of the C, onto 5001. I would expect it to copy the C and just never attach them to an owner, if it can't track the owners for in the future.
