I never tested 2.9 but reading here:

it says:

"#application and #session will raise a WARequestContextNotFound error if no
current request context is found. This should only happen outside of the
scope of a Seaside request. If your objects are using these methods as part
of their display string (they probably shouldn’t) you will want to catch the
error to avoid problems when opening an Inspector on your object."

I don't know if this help.
