We are well aware that it's a hack...
The basic problem is that the trace ID is allocated by the database, so
we have to write the trace record to the database to get the ID before
we can move the file to it's final home, as the filename is based on the
The old import daemon wasn't fast enough for it to be a problem but the
new one is so we added a delay to make it ignore any traces uploaded in
the last few minutes.
