I'm with you. From now on all, automatic updates are disabled. That had been my policy before, but I got complacent after my good experience with DE:HR.
I, too, was caught off guard. The moment I launched Steam, I received a message saying that Skyrim was successfully updated. No chance to change the settings, sadly.

To my knowledge, however, if you copy the original .exe file over the updated file, that should fix the "log in before you play" issue. People are commenting that the TESV.exe file was the only file affected from the patch, so you may be able to safely play if you paste over the new file. Personally, I wouldn't risk it. I'll simply deal with occasional crashing until this is patched. I'm still disappointed, but I wasn't expecting a patch of any sort until after Thanksgiving, so I missed my opportunity.
