It sounds as if the patch helps some folks and not others. In any case, count yourself lucky that you can even get the patch. My FTMM, downloaded from the Apple App Store, doesn't even give me the option to check for updates!
After a week of smooth sailing, I'm having the same problems many are having: multiple crashes, crash on compact, crash on import media, crash on upload to ancestry.com. Tech support mentioned that one other person that day had similar problems, but otherwise seemed unaware of the widespread problems.
