The release 3.1-3 is generated from the 3.1 tag which dates from 2018-04-28 
(as the Build ID shows). Even if it was only re-released a couple of days ago. 
The "-3" indicates fixes in packaging (so changes in either gnucash-on-windows 
or corrections directly made on the build server).

Your reconcile fixes on the other hand were added to the maint branch after 
the 3.1 release commit was tagged. So they will never be in any 3.1 release.

In case you're wondering why the release's build ID starts with "3.0" instead 
of "3.1", that is because John forgot to tag the build before kicking of the 
release procedure.

Yes, the latest nightly is the right one to point at (which I saw you did).
