It sounds like whatever is starting OOo is calling soffice rather than 
swriter, assuming you want it to start the word processing module (or 
ooffice instead of oowriter).  The icons/menu items for starting OOo 
tend to point to oowriter, which ultimately is just a symlink to 
swriter.  Trace it through and I think you'll find your answer.
