Of course, this was not meant as final solution. I just wanted to help
you to get it working until the fixed packages would be available. Also
I wanted to be sure that you had the same problem as Ulrich.

I have just pushed the fix for the file ownership, so the chmod should
not longer be needed in LO 4.1.1. I hope that it will help you as well
and that there is no other hidden problem.
