Yep, I got the looping crash bug too. Wouldn't even start up long enough to load the Speed Dial tab.

The workaround that worked for me was :-

1. With Opera closed, rename widgets folder (to widgets_DISABLED). Location of widgets folder is C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Opera\Opera\widgets (under Windows 7)
2. Run Opera
3. Close Opera
4. Rename widgets folder back to it's default
5. Opera should now run

So far Opera 12.13 is working again for me though only time will tell if I have to perform this operation again in the near future. Meantime, like everyone else, I'm hoping for a bug fix release soon!
