I tested GAL with all demo board in the repository and netnames on pads

This seems strange to me - I have just tried out all of board included
in the demo folder and everything was fine. Netnames show up, when the
zoom is big enough - maybe try zooming even more?
The second issue is about high contrast mode. The netnames are draw
under the highlighted layer (see screenshot of comlex_hierarchy.kicad_pcb).
I have just observed that too, I will fix it soon.
There is also a transparency problem with the OpenGL backend and
netnames, netnames under tracks are not draw (see screenshot).
It is not very clear to me - could you describe the problem with more
details? Is it about the case shown on the picture in the attachment? If
yes - then it was done on purpose. Netnames are shown directly over
tracks, so there are no situations when there is a track, a zone over
the track and a netname is shown on the zone.
Also, having semitransparent netnames blending into each other makes
them hard to read, I think it is better when one is covered by another
than when they are mixed up.
