It might disappoint you, but by take on this is very simple: you
should not try to use inline tasks within plain lists.
I added this note in the comment header of org-inlinetask.el:
;; Note that you should not try to use inline tasks within plain list,
;; visibility cycling is known to be problematic when doing so.
If anyone is willing to support inline tasks within plain list,
please send a patch.
