I haven't been farming, but I've probably gotten 2-4 Chronometric and Vertion traces just scanning through regular gameplay. I don't think anything with this is broken and I doubt they changed any of the random factors.

What you need to do is look for the opposite of what you really want. Last time I went exploring, I was hoping for ground combat, as I've been really enjoying the updates. It seemed all I got was mostly Gather Data missions, with an Aid the Planet, and Scan for Antiprotons thrown in for good measure. Very frustrating! Then I decided to trick the Cryptic engine by not caring what kind of mission I got, because no matter what, I got some sort of reward for doing it. Et voila, ground combat!

But seriously, its the fact that you're looking specifically for these two trace types, thus you're more apt to notice not getting them, and your frustration builds faster. It happens in many areas of life. Just chill, drink heavily, and enjoy the pretty colors.
