I'd guess "libgnomebreakpad.so" is not accessible from within the schroot environment.
And without it, GTK and nero can't do anything affecting the display.*However*, this is all guesswork, my knowledge of schroot (or chroot, for that matter) is pretty minimal.
What I do know is that a chroot is an isolated area that needs to have all the support files, executables and libraries set up correctly within the chroot environment for things to work. After all, it is a jail, intended to keep the user from accessing things above the jail's root directory.
Don't know if my ramblings will be of any help ;(, good luck may be the only thing further I can say.
