Actually, I think it's a mistake in the docs - when they were
reorganised a few months ago, the text referring to raiseExceptions
was moved to the tutorial:

I will reinstate it in the reference API docs, but the answer to
Jason's problem is to either subclass HTTPHandler and override
handleError to suppress the error, or set logging.raiseExceptions to
True (in which case all logging exceptions will be swallowed - not
necessarily what he wants).
