"conference has not yet started" popup doesn't close for Chrome users

We found something funny.
Self hosted Jitsi, Ubuntu Server20, latest stable, Secure Domain enabled:

A conference is scheduled.
Person AA is the moderator, uses Google Chrome 101
Person BB is the guest, also using Google Chrome 101.

BB waits for the call to start, and therefore sees the “The conference has not yet started” popup window.

Chrome console:

Logger.js:154 2022-05-04T10:44:06.604Z [conference.js] <Mce._onConferenceFailed>:  CONFERENCE FAILED: conference.authenticationRequired

AA creates the room, and BB enters. Both persons can see each other. But BBs popup window doesn’t disappear, and the slight grey over all stays.
The only solution to get rid of that window is for BB to actually reload the whole page, or clicking “Cancel” and re-enter the now created room.

There are no warnings in the console log, except for this Info:

interop.js:352 The description does not look like plan-b

This only happens if both users are using Google Chrome.
Any Ideas?

This had been fixed in the latest versions in unstable and will soon hit stable.
