JOSM is assuming that these track points belong together (to a single
track) and connects them with a line. Donno why this happens. I think
it has something to do with GPX-File during upload and the timestamp
for each trackpoint.
Try playing with the parameter "Maximum length" under Preferences -->
"Display Settings" --> "Draw lines between raw gps points."
