    I don't have a traces.log on my system, perhaps if you past a couple of lines it would give us a clue on what program is using it.
    I see it now, it is not in /var/log, or /Library/Logs but in the root on the HD.
    It is empty, so I would delete. I did mine just now.

    Restarting the machine re-creates this file. Does anyone have any further details about this particular file, which process created this file, and how to permanently hide or remove this file?

    Thanks!

    Solution: disable stackshot.

    $ sudo unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.stackshot.plist

    Then you can safely remove the file and it shouldn't show up again.

    CORRECTION: Removal of Persistent traces.log

    Actually you need to enter "sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.stackshot.plist"

    you forgot the launchctl command, thats the only thing that can unload it!

    :D
