Affects Version/s: Minecraft 1.4.6, Snapshot 13w02b, Snapshot 13w03a, Minecraft 1.5
Fix Version/s: None

Notebook - no additional graphics card noted
What I expected to happen was:
New chunks should load as previous to 1.4.6, and I should be able to fly over them in creative mode.
New chunks were not created, causing the game to crash as I flew.
Steps to reproduce:
Smooth lighting OFF
Performance POWER SAVER
View bobbing OFF
Advanced OpenGL ON
Large biomes, structures on, cheats on
Stay within 10000m from spawn
Fly over DESERT
The world where I noted this to occur was created after version 1.3.
Due to a moderately slow machine, new chunks sometimes take a long time to load. Since 1.4.6, if this happens while flying, especially over desert terrain, MineCraft may crash entirely if a chunk does not load before entering. I have not ventured more than 10000m from spawn.
I have not had this issue with previous updates, and have had to significantly downgrade the quality of render to make MineCraft playable on 1.4.6 update for either survival or creative. I have included 2 relevant crash reports.
Is this a bug, or a glitch due to a slow machine?
