The issue is mostly about the questionable choice of white color for the snap point. In your OP, you are trying to show the snapping point of the moving object, which is a rare case I'd say. I expect in most cases, the user would want to snap to other objects, hence without selection highlight, make it easy to see the snap point. And I've tested that it works about the same as the upstream master. It works better if you enable both selection on top and preselection on top.

With the LinkDaily branch (the one you just installed), you can also try the experimental render cache, which works better in all cases.

FYI that color can be changed in the preferences. See Draft_Snap#Preferences.
