I have done some testing with the beta release announced above, but I 
don't remember where you need me to report the results of my testing.

In particular, I installed it on my HP-Vectra 450 mhz. machine, and 
installed updates (there were 10.4 megabytes of them).

13.04 exhibits the same problem as 12.10 (and 12.04), where the software 
updater window goes away, and there is no indication (other than by 
closely watching the Task Manager window) that the process has completed.

The installation went fine, and didn't take overly long to complete.  
Installation was faster using a USB drive in a USB 2.0 port.

Also, by using a startup-USB drive (instead of a CD), it installed 
without any problems with only 512 megabytes of RAM, as Ali suggested.

I have also increased my swap partition as part of the installation 
process, but it appeared to have no affect on the software updater problem.
