No, this is not a glitch. The Focus Sash is not a normal single use item, though in a regular battle in can only be used once. In Shedinja's case however, it cannot be used like that. Think about it - if it could be, Shedinja would be impossible to beat.
So basically, Game Freak made it this way to prevent Shedinja from becoming impossible to beat.

not completely impossible because of weather and status. but i see your point.
Focus sash doesn't come back if your HP is restored to 100%, it is gone until the battle is over.
@ charizard9012: Yeah, but in this situation there was no weather.
@ B3N: Fixed.
