 Cannot Process more than One Trace File

I have a server side trace on SQL Server 2008 R2 that is running pretty much continuously.

My files reside in the same folder, and the file names are numbered sequentially, like this:
...and so on

However, when I run ClearTrace and point to the Prod_AllProcs_11237.trc file as the first file, that file is the only one that gets processed and none of the other files are processed.

How can I get ClearTrace to process all the other files in the folder?
Am I missing something obvious?

I would like to know if anyone has figured this out.

I have a folder with 230 trace files and started ClearTrace. It was processing each file and rolling over as expected but hit an exception and I had to close it. Now it stops after one file.
