Does the GPS Status bar in the bottom right corner sometimes displays a 3D Fix 
which is needed to determine the altitude? The problem might be that
gpsdrive switches to n/a in the altitude widget as soon as your gps
device loses its 3D fix. If this happens frequently it might look as if
there were no altitude information altogether.
It would be helpful if you could provide a sample of collected nmea
data for example by starting gpsd with -D2 or by reading nmea sentences
directly from the device.
