In your system and/or user profile I'd bet, yes.

(I would need to install OOo again to look at it, OOo is dead and just lives
still in sid because we're in freeze for squeeze. Will create a chroot..)

I found it! Or at least I have managed to solve the problem. Files and directories under /var/spool/openoffice/uno_packages/cache were only readable and writable by root. I don't know why, I've never gone there before as far as I know.

I guess that's why only root could run openoffice.org, and noone else, not even a new user (as I just discovered). I deleted everything under that directory, and it works again for all users.
