The version of dchroot in stable (not etch or unstable) uses su(1) to
execute the command.  su is part of the login package, which could
explain this.

Does running

  dchroot ... /usr/bin/openoffice

instead of

  dchroot ... openoffice

make any difference?

How about

  dchroot ... perl /usr/bin/openoffice


  dchroot ... 'perl /usr/bin/openoffice'
