After some recent updates, can't install Google Earth

Bug Description

I was able to download and install Google Earth from '', on Ubuntu Oneiric (64 bit). After a subsequent upgrade broke Ubuntu, I re-installed Ubuntu Oneiric, via the daily update package and downloaded and installed Google Earth (together with lsb-core).
I restarted and selected Google Earth, the splash screen opened and then Google Earth crashed. I think the problem may be associated with a recent Ubuntu Oneiric update, since the same package version was successfully installed on an earlier version of Ubuntu Oneiric.
To confirm this, I successfully installed the same version of Google Earth in Ubuntu Natty.
For reference, I include a copy of the googleearth crashlog:-
