When upgrading to 3.13 the following code to disable the measurement tool returns an error:

measurement.setTool("distance", false);

Here is the error:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'domNode' of undefined

When I switch back to 3.12 it works fine. I'm thinking it's a bug in 3.13, but wanted to see if anyone else has run across this?

The problem was that the setTool() method was being called before startup(). It appears that starting with 3.13 you must call startup() before setTool().

My application was built in a way where setTool() was being called to disable the measurement tool, even if it was not active. Prior to 3.13 that worked fine, but it seems that has changed.
