NullReferenceException in Mono web-application (nginx + fast-cgi, Ubuntu 15.04, mono 4.0.3) for concurrent web-requests when I use RedisSessionStateProvider from Azure/aspnet-redis-providers.

[2015-08-26 12:49:04.893][Error]GetItemFromSessionStore => System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
at Microsoft.Web.Redis.KeyGenerator.RegenerateKeyStringIfIdModified (System.String id, System.String applicationName) [0x00000] in :0
at Microsoft.Web.Redis.RedisSessionStateProvider.GetAccessToStore (System.String id) [0x00000] in :0
at Microsoft.Web.Redis.RedisSessionStateProvider.GetItemFromSessionStore (Boolean isWriteLockRequired, System.Web.HttpContext context, System.String id, System.Boolean& locked, System.TimeSpan& lockAge, System.Object& lockId, System.Web.SessionState.SessionStateActions& actions) [0x00000] in :0

Web.config session section:

<sessionState mode="Custom" customProvider="RedisSessionStateProvider">
        <add name="RedisSessionStateProvider" type="Microsoft.Web.Redis.RedisSessionStateProvider" host="" accessKey="" ssl="false" />

It happens only with Mono and when request is not authenticated and has not cookies. I don't know why session id is null. This is link to code where session provider receives sessionId from ASP.NET Mono.


Also I posted issue to Azure/aspnet-redis-providers project.
