Don't think so.  I just took a look at the code, and it appears to me
that the facade is only created once per session, not once per
getSession() call.

I did think of another issue with this situation:  if the attribute
under discussion is only relevant for one particular request, it's a
design flaw to store it in the session.  It should be saved in the
request instead, thereby avoiding any concurrency issues.  Since the OP
didn't really give us much information about the lifetime of the
attribute, I just assumed it had session scope.
