As more than one thread can attempt to modify context attribut, would not be a good idea to synchronze the modification code on the contect attribute?
sysnchronized (aContextAttribute) { }

Synchronization results in performance bottleneck. Use it wisely. If too many threads access the contextAttribute, and its synchronized, you may want to think about your design again.
