Comment 1 Lana Brindley 2008-11-25 22:14:59 EST
This also appears in that document in section 4.1 (page 13) both in the admonition and in the list titled "reporting a bug".

Comment 2 Jeff Fearn 2008-11-25 22:38:49 EST
This is the same issue as 462670, foot notes in blocks that are outside the normal space allocation routine can not add footnotes.
