Can you give some more details on why ftpd is triggering a dlopen

possibly affect helper programs ability to use dlopen() from within
libc).

Sure. That's because nsdispatch(3) would reload /etc/nsswitch.conf if
it notices a change. After chroot() the file is considered as
"chang"ed and thus it reloads the file as well as designated shared
libraries.
