OK, so at least I'm not the only one...
I can confirm that the above setting makes the help browser more stable (but also less nice).
The "Check for Updates" crash seems totally unrelated - it takes down the whole Matlab instance about 9 times out of 10.
I guess I'm going to stay with 2012a for now until there's an update or 2013a.
