recently I updated from chrony 3.0 to 3.1 (chrony-3.1-21.1.x86_64). I am using 
the include statement in the chrony config file.
After updating the statements in the included file are not included any more.

This is my /etc/chrony.conf:
driftfile /var/lib/chrony/drift
makestep 62 -1
local stratum 7 orphan
maxdistance 6
logdir /var/log/chrony
log measurements statistics tracking rtc refclocks tempcomp
logbanner 100
logchange 0.1
refclock SHM 0 refid GPS precision 1e-1 offset 0.18 delay 0.2
refclock SHM 1 refid PPS precision 1e-9 delay 0.15
include /home/tester/ntp.include

This is /home/tester/ntp.include (Rights -rw-r--r--):
server iburst

chronyc sources lists (GPS is not connected at the moment):
210 Number of sources = 2
MS Name/IP address         Stratum Poll Reach LastRx Last sample
#? GPS                           0   4     0     -     +0ns[   +0ns] +/-    0ns
#? PPS                           0   4     0     -     +0ns[   +0ns] +/-    0ns

chronyc does not complain :

The server is used when I move the server statement from the include file to 

Is there any known bug with 3.1?
Are there any other known reasons why the include statement does not work as
