I did a fresh install of WP4.2 today, but after playing for a while with setting up a custom user roles I realized that the built-in subscriber role is returning blank page instead of the dashboard.
Do you have the same problem?

I found an answer. It is because the WooCommerce plugin which prevents users without edit_posts capability to display dashboard.
Well, I think they should let you know that they are making this kind of change in WordPress default settings. Because you are not able to turn it off in WooCommerce settings.
