No. The original error is something else which may or may not have
anything to do with log files, but then scripts/driver attempts to log
the error and can't write the error log, and this is the traceback.

That's because all the log entries you mention are written by
mailmanctl or qrunners which presumably are executing as group
mailman. It is only the web server that can't write the log(s).

Is this Max OS X Server with Apple's mailman or is it your own Mailman
installed from source? If the former, item 8) in
might be of interest.
