I've noticed some problems due to my windows roaming profile size recently.
It's not only QGIS 3 fault but I would avoid as much as possible to store too much data there.

I agree that this a big problem for Windows users with roaming profiles (such as most gov organizations, companies, etc.)
Storing many MB of cache content in the roaming profile slows logging into Windows a lot and ultimately such users will get complaints from their IT department.
