I cannot say why this method is still called if there is no session at that time.

the exception inside this method leads to a correct execution.

Without an explanation of how this problem occurs, your patch will not
be applied. We don't apply patches to fix problems we don't understand
as more often then not that makes the problem worse not better. At best
it would be fixing the symptom rather than the root cause and that is
not helpful.

Since this code is only triggered when parsing a request from the client this error should
never be observed.
