You don't mention what OS/graphics card you are using. I have been
tracking a problem with OpenGL2 and Mesa/Intel DRI driver (based on
Mesa) with Qt 5. It looks just like this, no working depth buffer. I
proposed a patch that made it work, but it made the NVIDIA-based Linux
systems segfault.

I am hoping that we can come up with something that will work on both,
but I haven't had time to revisit it since I looked at it in November.
I can dig up the merge request if this sounds like your set up.
