Help Wanted ARFoundation: Use worldmap with ARKit

    Hello,
    I have recently migrated to ARFoundation 4.0.2 on Unity 2019.3.3f1.

    On my project, I use worldmap to create AR persistence.
    It was working well until I update ARFoundation.

    I am now facing a strange issue: the first time I launch my app, all seems to perform well (ARSession is correctly started, my image library for tracking is loading well, my worldmap is correctly read from a file and applyed) but I can see in the log that my ARSession is updated several times after I have applied my worldmap.
    The environment is not recognized!

    If I come back to my main menu and reset the tracking (ARSession + imge library + worldmap), this time the environment is recognized.

    Each time I restart my app, the same scenario occurs.

    I think there is an issue the first time due to some ARSession related object not having finished its initialization but I can't find which one and how to check its readyness.
    I tried by adding a small wait (2 seconds): it solves the issue but I am not very pleased to use this kind of solution. There is always a risk that the chosen duration is not enough of some other device.

    Has someone faced the same issue? How did you solve it?

    Thanks for your help


    Remark:
    Here are the logs I have when meeting the bug.

    As you can see, there is a mention to initialWorldmap in the first line but not on the following ones.
