Can you link to this bug report?

Your Xfce session itself is black, or the login screen? In 2007
Xubuntu was using a different login manager (GDM vs LightDM) so I'd be
surprised if these were related.

Does your existing bug from 2007 include your hardware info? I have
encountered black screen issue with LightDM from time to time on one
of my laptops, but it's intermittent so I can't easily reproduce it
and all my other systems are fine.
