I'm seeing the black screen and no x on my desktop with the Lubuntu 13.04 nightly build I downloaded on March 15. Seems to be a modesetting problem. Saw the same problems with Fedora's 3.8 kernels. The 3.9 kernels show garbled dots instead of text, but still can't get into X. This is all with the nouveau driver. X-vesa works, but is an unacceptable option; I've got a 1680x1050 monitor.
