Yes, this is very likely the source of your problem. You should have to 
disable rpath in every library for LD_LIBRARY_PATH to work.

Yes, actually, I can think of two other solutions:
1) link your program with all the instrumented libraries you need and use 
rpath in it, so that the right libraries are guaranteed to be loaded by the 
dynamic linker.

2) use LD_PRELOAD and name all instrumented libraries you need loading.
