Sometimes the text that references the footnote is at the bottom of a page, and the footnote number shows up with a small graphic arrow next to it. In these cases, the actual footnote text will show up on the next page. Also in this case, the footnote number with the footnote text will usually be labeled "1", even though the next footnote after it (the one that really belongs on that page) is numbered "1" also.

the numbering is related to the fact that you use page bound notes; 
since footnotes are 'typeset on the spot' the 1 is already set when tex 
decides to move the note; (ok, i can probably cook up a solution for 
this, but it's kind of hairy)

concerning moved notes: you can play with


as footnote options
