Right if the session information is lost. If you just want to serve
some PDFs and don't need session information then the easiest way is
to just implement a WARequestHandler or add a WARequestFilter to you
application. Then no new session will be created.

If you know the session and continuation key.

That's Seaside 2.8 code, in 3.0 you can use
self requestContest request remoteAddress
