krunner: broken font rendering

It seems that krunner displays fonts in a somewhat broken manner,
including "System Activity" (which is launched by krunner.)
To demonstrate, here's a screenshot of "System Activity" through krunner:
Look at how "Shared Mem" is rendered, for example.
And here's the same process list display, but through "System Monitor":
Notice how "System Monitor" has correct font display. I found out that
I can trigger the same bug in System Monitor if I launch it with:
ksysguard -graphicssystem native
Then it looks like this:
Look for example at how the word "Table" (in "Process Table") is
rendered compared to the previous screenshot.
Another application that has the same problem is KSnapshot. And indeed,
if I launch it manually with:
ksnapshot -graphicssystem raster
then the problem goes away.
In System Settings, in the Desktop Effects section's "Advanced" tab, I
have "Raster" set as the "Qt graphics system". My Linux distro (Gentoo)
also has this set in the environment:
So why is this happening? How can I make krunner (and KSnapshot) use
the raster engine by default and not have broken font rendering?
