What's the source for the story about how Glock acquired the .40 S&W rounds it used to develop the first .40 cal Glocks? Paul Barrett, in his book on Glock mentions that the rounds were acquired from the S&W booth at SHOT Show, but indicates that they were samples and doesn't suggest that there was any wrongdoing involved nor even characterize the acquisition negatively.
