Not knowing that much about Steam, is it still possible to have a regular install (with its own desktop shortcut) and a beta install (with its own desktop shortcut) at the same time? My bandwidth doesn't allow for casual updates of large amounts of data.
I don't think so. Bohemia Interactive would have to do something similar to what Tripwire Interactive did with Red Orchestra 2. Tripwire Interactive had two versions of Red Orchestra 2 on Steam, one was the beta version and the other was the stable game. This allowed you to participate in the betas as well as have the stable release.

Are you sure you are using the development build, because enabling/disabling this option doesn't do anything for me, no new files are downloaded (I tried with verify game cache and restarting steam).
What is your build number in menu?
Maybe it's a placebo effect that it is running better.
Yes, I am using the development build. You might not see any changes because they may have not uploaded anything to the servers. I have v0.5.102571
