The default is the "raster" graphics engine, which works somewhat like
you described in your original e-mail:
http://labs.qt.nokia.com/2009/12/18/qt-graphics-and-performance-the-raster-engine/

The "native" graphics engine uses regular X11, which will probably
always be best over SSH.

Qt also respects the QT_GRAPHICSSYSTEM environment variable to
configure this, so you can add `export QT_GRAPHICSSYSTEM=native` to
your ~/.profile or wherever to make it your "default".
