"ffmpeg -loglevel verbose" at least shows you which segments are opened.

That's correct, git master doesn't have this issue. (I tried to
reproduce.) hls support has received quite a few enhancements and
possibly fixes recently, perhaps the fixes weren't backported to 3.1.x

There are plans to release ffmpeg 3.2 from git master "soon", but no
official date, AFAIK. You could request the fix to be backported to
3.1, but I think a 3.1.5 release will not come well before 3.2. ;-)

Why do you need a release, anyway? Do you rely on getting your ffmpeg
from a distribution?

(BTW, great instructions to reproduce, without any external
dependencies or input files. Thanks for that!)
