Comment (by doubleb):

 So as I understand from your test, these error messages come from the
 fact, that -use_localtime option may produce identical segment names for
 different segments even when -hls_time value is greater then 2.
 I think hls_enc should give a warning log message in these cases when it
 produces same segment names as an existing one in its segment maintain
 My original ffmpeg command line - when I discovered these error messages -
 contained video content in hls, but I removed that part in my error report
 to be reproducible without libx264 encoder. So, these case may appear in
 normal (video+audio) cases also.
 Thanky ou for your help.
