No, more likely you have restarted your scheduler a moment before.
Have you ?
- scheduler-1 starts "mailbox", and feeds it a bunch of
filenames to process
- scheduler-1 is killed, and scheduler-2 is started
- mailbox-1 is still running, but hasn't processed every file yet
- scheduler-2 removes all directories on $POSTOFFICE/scheduler/
(and their contents) and starts to build new set of directories
- mailbox-1 comes around to "local/69910", which is there no more
- scheduler-2 gets around to create said directory and file in it.
- scheduler-2 starts mailbox-2 and submits the file again, and
the file gets delivered
Problem: I don't think the actual problem is there, however any mails have
not been lost! (to my knowledge, and I have been looking..)

With these permissions everybody can read directory listings
and access files in these directories. (If file-permissions allow
accessing, of course!) Running with root permissions (uid 0) would
also mean that no such permission have any real effect.

Me neither, and still I get those messages every
now and then...
