By 'Active Posts' I'm assuming you mean the 'View New Posts' link at the top of the page? If so, then that only shows new posts since you last viewed the forum. In your example - I saw the 'new posts' earlier this morning, but as I've viewed them, and there's been no new posts since 9.51am it's dropped off the new posts list that I've just looked at.

The posts aren't missing as far as I can see.

Short answer. Don't know. Let me look into it - I've never used the active topics menu (and din't actually realise it was there!)

Amazing what a hammer and screwdriver can fix . . .

A quick look at the forum permissions showed that Active Topics was switched off for the Clyde Board (but was on on the others). I've now put it on - let me know if that makes a difference.
