Disregarded, no worries.  As you probably know, being snarky with

while asking for their help to fix a problem that you are experiencing,
might not be a very effective way to achieve your goal.

The problem is related to other causes and we don't need more info,
thanks.  You can keep using your system, just without the Trace-File
config option.
