if you do not know, then maybe you should not write things that will confuse others even

Mark already gave you the answer, but I'll try again :

The above most probably means that Tomcat is running a cgi-bin script, and that it is this

cgi-bin script (which is not a part of Tomcat) which is writing these lines on its STDOUT.
(for example, if this script is a shell script, it could just be doing "echo" or "print")

Whatever is written to STDOUT is then captured by Tomcat's standard logger, and ends up in


Find that cgi-bin script, find out why it is writing this, and you will have your answer.

Again, as Mark wrote the first time, it is not directly Tomcat code writing these lines. 
It is an external script, part of an application which Tomcat has been asked to run.
The Tomcat logging code is just the intermediate mail-man here.
