Hmmm, the timestamps in that file look strange to me.  Iirc our gpx
processor needs timestamps or will drop the file.  There should be a
message to you if the file is dropped, so check your email filters?

The other reason traces might disappear is based on the privacy
settings. So have a look at that as well.
