The preset 1280x800 works fine in the latest Beta. However, it could be due to doing Ubuntu updates - I have not tried doing updates in Ubuntu yet. (since the release)
I do notice in the latest beta that when you go to "shut down" Ubuntu - it kind of locks you into the VM and it's blank (or it's just taking forever).
But yeah, it should work. If you have the original download - trash your current one and use a fresh copy - test it. Then test doing Ubuntu updates and see if that's whats causing it.
