Yeah thanks, looks like I will continue on with 1.3.3.x and use the
workarounds. While it does require some adjustments here and there it seems
to work fine, so on I go. 
I guess I'm not looking for anything rock solid, just something that will be
able to open an existing 1.3.3.x doc "as is" and export a PDF/X-3 with
bleeds. Here's hoping :)
While I will definitely stick to the 1.3.3.x for my project, I always enjoy
playing around with the latest development version to see what new wonderful
additions have been included!

Thanks for the info
