I called the dealership to report this, and they said that they have seen the same thing with many of their models and suggested that I could disable A.S.S. until the engine is warm. I can't help thinking though that a vehicle at this price shouldn't have these problems and that BMW must have issued a software fix for it at some point. The other problem for me (besides the embarrasment factor) is that this type of issue could lead to an accident in certain driving situations.

Any feedback on whether others have been experiencing the same thing would be welcome.

Sorry you are experiencing this. I have a January 2012 build 2012 535i and have never had the car stall on a restart of the auto start/stop, and I rarely turn it (start/stop) off, and have never turned it off first thing after starting car up. You would think a 2013 would not have the issue if a 2012 doesn't.
