I don't exactly know what the extensions.db file is or does in relation to Open Office, but the reason you can't empty it from the Trash will be due to the fact that the operating system still has the file open for some reason. This can happen even if the application is not running. I would suggest rebooting your Mac and trying again. This should release the file from being used and allow you to remove it.
