Which card? There is support for a range of 2-d stuff, no 3-d.

Are you using XFT fonts?

My guess at an explanation consistent with this is a bug in the
Xrender extension of the server, now being exercised by newer
fontconfig/XFT code.

As a simple start, have you tried re-running fc-cache -fv?  

A good way to isolate this is, as has been pointed out, to try
different combinations of remote display.
