Default [Q] Lock screen settings crash...

Hi,

I just upgraded a galaxy s3 I9300 to stock rom 4.3, and there is a problem with the lock screen settings.
When I go to settings -> lock screen it just crashes
like this:

I tried the solution suggested here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2021386
but it didn't work, or I didn't do it right...
Can someone please tell me how to fix it ?

Have you tried recovery mode -> wipe cache partition (+ wipe data/factory reset if it didn't help)?

I'm trying to avoid factory reset, because I don't want to lose data...
Is this the only solution ?

Did you try 'wipe cache' alone?

No. Its also part of stock recovery (BTW- backup all your sdcard data, just in case...)

Does wipe cache delete any important data ? because the user I'm helping doesn't want to lose any data...

It doesn't suppose to. To make it simple-it only makes the system rebuild its applications' path, so no change in stored data.

But yet again- the rom is supposed to work without any bugs, but here we are...
