Postsharp with log4net backend is throwing exception when logging

Our soft is using Postsharp Diagnostics Log attribute with Log4Net backend for logging.
The GlobalAspect.cs is nothing special as follows.

        AttributeTargetTypeAttributes = MulticastAttributes.Public,
        AttributeTargetMemberAttributes = MulticastAttributes.Public,
        AttributePriority = 1)]
[assembly: Log(AttributeExclude = true, AttributeTargetMembers = "regex:^get_|set_", AttributePriority = 2)]

It has been working well for a long time but suddenly the following error began to show up in the log.
Could you give me some hints as how to resolve this kind of problems?
Thanks in advance.

System.InvalidOperationException: Cannot pop the AsyncLocal context {SyncMethodLoggingContext Description="MessagesHandlerExtension.OnMessage({Common.MessagesHandler}, {Processing}, "[{0}]", [ "[BUDGET],[INPUT],[E2100],[FY16.MAY]" ])", IsDisposed=False, ThreadContext.Id=4} because it is not equal to the current context {SyncMethodLoggingContext Description="Server.SctMgrDataOperator..ctor({Server.ServerInfo}, {Server.Session}, {Common.MgrStruct})", IsDisposed=False, ThreadContext.Id=8}.

    The reported issue looks similar to a known bug #15901 that has been fixed in PostSharp version 5.0.48. Please update your PostSharp NuGet packages to the latest build of 5.0 or 6.0 version and let us know whether this helped to resolve the issue.
