There is always a risk with firmware upgrades -
a. the risk that the upgrade may not go according to plan leaving you with an expensive paperweight.
b. Lose some existing functionality
c. Gain functionality that however causes the device stress such as crashes or overheating
I think you're overly paranoid.
Having owned almost every Pentax DSLR from the *istDL2 to my current K-5 and Kr, none of what you've stated has ever happened. If anything, I can definitely testify that there are often real but unstated improvements in code and functionality beyond what is officially stated... knowing my local Pentax repair personnel definitely helps.
