Which is a tad annoying, as my example worked in both mkii and mkiv
just fine before the switch to the new mixed column system. It worked
ok for decades, in fact.

The weird bit here is that the new mixed columns do actually reserve 
the correct amount of vertical space for the footnote, they just 
seem to ‘forget’ to break the footnote into lines in the end.

Best wishes,
