that may be the problem ...
Unless you really have a specific reason to have a common home dir,
I think you are asking for more or less unpredictability with both
installations (even if they are f12 and f13 distros). You are going backwards
and forwards (f12, f13) with your home configuration files.

Your distro installation and updates put a lot of config files in your home
dir ( the dot files) and unless you install exactly the same version of every 
program there might be conflicts.
Every time something changes in the behaviour of your machine, your ability
to understand and debug it is diminished (newly downloaded packages ?,
new/changed config files ?, forgot about .rpmsave, .rpmnew ?, etc).

Fedora is a fast moving dev environment. 
You yourself should not introduce additional uncertainty - you want to do
some useful work with your machine on a daily basis, right ?
