Bug Description

Download KML file from here:

gpsbabel -t -i kml -f TDV2014A.kml -x track,faketime=20100101000001+1 -x track,pack -o gpx -F faketime.gpx

gpsbabel -t -i gpx -f faketime.gpx -x track,start=20100101000001,stop=20100101000038 -o kml,points=0,points=0 -F tdv2014_day1_AB.kml

gpsbabel -t -i kml -f tdv2014_day1_AB.kml -x reverse -o kml,points=0 -F tdv2014_day1_BA.kml
perl -p -i -n -e "s/<MultiGeometry>/<MultiGeometry><LineString><coordinates>/" tdv2014_day1_BA.kml

Also note that this filter non-consensually separates into multiple paths, apparently because of duplicate track points.

Another possible workaround is to use a duplicate filter.

Also: Program also non-consensually inserts flags at each data point on track unless you go out of your way to prevent it using -o kml,points=0, which isn't even an option on some formats .
