I'm curious about how stable are pre-release versions of minor software updates (OSX 10.9.1-pre, for example) for everyday use in production.
Had anyone encountered any bugs with pre-release versions in the past that made the system unusable?

Typically, they are mostly stable. They may have a noticeable bug or two, but it usually isn't anything that would cause major inconvenience.
However, I don't know why you would want to use a version before it's released. Unless something absolutely critical was patched, there's really no benefit to it. It's not likely there'd be any crippling issues with prerelease versions, but why bother when it'll be released pretty soon anyways?
