I'm getting this error when I import SessionState:

AttributeError: 'ReportSession' object has no attribute '_main_dg'
File "e:\anaconda3\envs\myenv\lib\site-packages\streamlit\", line 314, in _run_script
exec(code, module.dict)
File "", line 139, in
session_state = SessionState.get(question=1)
File "", line 61, in get
if session_info.session._main_dg == ctx.main_dg:

any idea how to fix this?
