There could be many reasons for this.  First off, we don't know anything
about your system.  Please read and follow

to provide us with that information.  Second, if you've previously started
sshd as SYSTEM (or sshd_server, if you used privilege separation), you
will have log files and directories owned by that user, which are now
inaccessible to the user you're trying to run sshd as.

But the above is a WAG in the absense of any information about your setup.
