The Respawning question was more general.
Take the Temple Area. Until one wipes out the Vampiric Wolves, the area is pretty active. Imoen, as my scout, walks through an area. However, as the remaining team moves up into the area that Imoen saw as empty--- the team may get jumped (in the Temple Area by War Dogs, Hobgobliins etc). I thought maybe I was missing them so I did a test. Sometimes I did fail to see the bad guys. However, occasionally, the game will create a batch of bad guys between Imoen and the trailing group. Imoen will catch the groups that are there when one enters the map area, but there seems to be sites on maps that respawn mid-scouting. I did not remember this from my first walk though, so I was wondering if I just didn't notice it the first time, or if this was a change in the game.
As for my Firewine comment, I was just venting path frustration and fire arrow monkey hatred.
