Symptoms

ALTER EXTTRAIL says EXTRACT is running, cannot be altered
This is contradictory to the documentation saying
MEGABYTES n
The maximum size of a file, in megabytes. The default is 500. After using this option, issue the SEND EXTRACT command with the ROLLOVER option to close the current trail file and open a new one.

This suggests that alter exttrail can be done when extract is running.
