No. You're going to be missing any scenarios added post release of .20. That's not a long list, but you'll still be missing them.
That makes no sense at all. How will scenarios be missing if we install .20 and followed by .40? That would be all there is to install.
Maybe the release of the patch wasn't tested well enough, maybe it should've been postponed until over the holidays, I don't know. Maybe the patch was stuck in QA at Matrix and they suddenly decided to release it post-haste, and the developers had nothing to do with it.
All people asked for pre-release was some information, like "is there a patch in the works at all?", "what's the expected ETA?" and "what fixes will it contain?"
For the future I think it's important the testers follow consistent and well-tested guidelines for applying the beta patches. Full uninstall and reinstall with the exact files that will be available to new users, for every patch if necessary. Not some random collection of settings and files someone happened to have lying around for years, and that for some miracle works because the Sounds directory is still there but those who do a clean install will never see this and crash...
Oh, and I'll be happy to volunteer for any hypothetical future patch - if you can stand my constant nagging
