Yes you might have issues with a Beta 4.2.x.x.
I just - this afternoon - replaced 4.0.6 with 4.1.4 and will be testing
it out for a bit.
I started with 9.04 or 9.10, kept 10.04 LTS till 12.04 LTS came out. I
tried to update to 11.xx but has issues that ended up being 11.xx issues
with my on-board video card that 10.04 did not have. I found out about
that when I went to 12.04 and the same problem was there, but went away
with a upgrade from NVIDIA on-mother-board to NVIDIA PCIe-card.
I have upgraded - not clean install - before on a laptop, but things
keep being kept on the drive that is no longer needed. The clean
install from 10.04 to 12.04 reduced the drive space of everything
installed in the root folders other than "/home" by over 50 GB that the
11.04 to 12.04 upgrading without a clean install. I did this on a
laptop. So anytime I "upgrade" it needs to be a clean install. The
problem with that is I keep forgetting all these little things like the
needed files to be able to lay "protected" DVDs on my Ubuntu desktop and
a lot of other "stuff" that I need to get my work done. Took a few
weeks to install everything [or remembering what is needed to be
installed] that I had on my previous version of Ubuntu.
Once I install the OS, then I have to install MATE all over again and
all of the tweaks for that desktop environment. Also the time to
install all of the packages I use on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
When I installed 12.04 on a new drive, after the old one failed, it took
over 16 hours to install the OS, MATE, and all of the packages, less all
of the tweaks and such I keep forgetting to install till I need them.
That is with a semi-fast quad processor desktop. It takes much more on
my slower dual core desktop I dual boot with Win7.

I've not had any issues with LO 184.108.40.206 (Document Foundation Version)

beta you might want to try 220.127.116.11 and see if the same thing happens.
If 18.104.22.168 works fine, odds are it is a bug in 4.2. If you have the
same issues with both versions, then I would think it is something
with your computer.
You are correct, Ubuntu 14.04 is the next long term release. I've read
quite a few good things about it, and nothing that scares me. I've had
every version since 8.10. 13.10 is the most polished, and also the
fastest version yet. Upgrading even just to get the kernel updates
I've found to be worthwhile.

I've never used Mate, only Unity, so can't comment on that.
My understanding is that Ubuntu 14.04 is the next long term release, but
from all I've heard I must say I'm quite nervous about upgrading when
