Well, idea is just as good as the other suggestions I got. ;-)

Okay.  Here's what I changed:

I created a script called "bash32" that is the following:

#! /bin/bash

exec schroot -p -c etch-i386 bash "$@"

Then I changed my firefox script to be:

#! /usr/local/bin/bash32

exec firefox "$@"

This now works.  Although I'd sure like to know why.

Anyway, thanks a lot, Oli, for helping me out with this.
