MRTG will give you those errors anytime it is building new log files.
Since you keep deleting the log files, it keep creating them, and sending
you the error.   I imagine that if you just let it go, it will do fine.
Let it run 2 or 3 times ( or run it by hand ), if you are still receiving
the errors, *then* you have a problem.   For now, it looks like normal 
mrtg behavior.
