Enabling the compositor solves all the issues. Thanks for the hint.
But: The Gtk2 version at least has not the issue with the black corners, independet of the compositor. (And with Gtk2 the default theme is more white, while with Gtk3 the default theme is more grey - is this intended?)
What issues do you have with lags? I encounter some when I click 'Preview' at a very high frequency, but apart from that it runs fine.

Sounds like you haven't enabled the compositor. Tbh I haven't tested the
branch without compositor, but I would expect rounded corners to work
either way (XShape extension), transparency obviously cannot really work.

I noticed some other issues, which are some lags (maybe my local install or
has someone else noticed that?) and a strange inconsistency with theming:
my css code works with the preview window, i.e. the button there is styled
correctly, but not with the actual popups, where the buttons are left
