I can now reproduce these two problems on one of my test systems.
I do not know yet what has changed to break the OpenGL rendering, and I
haven't had a chance to look into the "dancing window".

The good news is that you can switch back to the Python2 / GTK2 builds
to get going again, there are 3.0.2-RC builds here:

Sorry about the inconvenience. This is not something the automated tests
can catch, and I tend to test MS Windows manually in a VirtualBox
virtual machine which lacks OpenGL..
I'll try to do better next time.
