ABP disables Google Earth's search function (doesn't take you there)

Android 4.4.2 (not rooted) with ABP 1.2.1 final or latest dev version (
Easylist Germany + Easylist

How to reproduce

  1. enable ABP
  2. start Google Earth
  3. search any location/city and choose it (let you take there)
  4. wait...

Observed behaviour

auto-completion works, but when you pick a place you're never taken there,
only a spinning wheel is shown endlessly

Expected behaviour

you are taken to the place you have chosen

As soon as you disable ABP everything is working fine and as expected again.

Could an exception for Google Earth be added to the proxy code?
(I've read other complaints in the Google Earth comments section about the exact same issue, probably also from ABP users...)

Sorry, it's supposed to say "ABP disables..." but I can't edit the title anymore...
