Appears to be caused by the Hi-Z code. No known solution at this
point, aside from disabling Hi-Z. Here's a script that I use to launch
google-earth with Hi-Z disabled (and enough core fonts to make the
broken Qt version included work):

export INTEL_HIZ=0
if xset q | grep -q "$MISCFONTS"; then
	echo 'fonts already present'
	xset fp+ /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc
/usr/bin/google-earth "$@"
