Well, if you ask me it's got something to do with autocad's image handeling. That's the base of any masking that autodesk uses with an exception to mtext masking. I also use wipeouts in some of my boundary pin blocks, and never had problems before 2013. I think there are some internal components that autodesk has yet to complete in the programming, so i'll just chock it up to autodesks constat "Work in progress" programming.
