Anyone play Reach for the Stars?

A question: I found a 1.2 patch on the SSG website and it has some nice and neccessary features. But loading it has completely broken the AI, to the point where I can just advance hundreds of turns and it will never move off its home planet. Was this ever fixed? Pre-patch the AI was fine.

Wondering, why would a company make a patch that wrecks the game and then leave it on their website for 9 months?
