Might be as simple as this: the plugins get launched as separate processes
and don't inherit the LD_PRELOAD since you don't explicitly export it? (Or
am I spouting crap?)

Try (given bash):

$ export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/X11R6/lib/libaudiooss.so.1.0
$ firebird

hang yourself.  And then a couple of feet more, just to be sure.
