  That filename isn't dynamically expanded.  You need to use ${logdir}

  It's probably wrong.

  You also need to separate *configuration* variables from *request*
variables.  The configuration variables are static, and read from the
config files.  They're ${foo}.  The request variables are dynamic, and
change with every request.  They're all %{foo}

  %{logdir} is wrong.  It's interpreted as a request attribute.  But the
'logdir' attribute doesn't exist, so it expands to nothing.

  %{User-Name} is very different from ${logdir}.
