Footnote number fields inserted in a table heading are not displayed in the subsequent reiterations of the table heading for tables that stretch over more than one page and that have their heading repeated on each new page.

Sample document demonstrating the footnote number table heading issue
I can't confirm it. I tried to reproduce it with LO 188.8.131.52:
1. Open a new document
2. Insert a table with a heading and 50 rows
3. Type a text of the heading => text appears also on the second side.
4. Insert a footnote to the heading => footnote only appears on the first side.
I did a second try:
1. Open a new document
2. Insert a table with a heading 20 rows
3. Insert a text to the heading
4. Insert a footnot to the heading
5. Add some rows => heading appears also on the second side but again without a footnote.
I can't assess whether this is also a bug, but it is a different different from the behaviour described in this bug report.

Not sure why you had to produce a new document when I had attached a sample.
Anyway, I'll attach a screenshot with this issue using LibreOffice 184.108.40.206.

I'm sorry. I've opened your document, but I thought, there was a footnote number in the heading and the problem was, that the footnote itself wasn't displayed. Sorry for the confusion.
So I can confirm the behaviour you describe, but I'm still not sure that this is a bug. I see more disadvantages, if the footnote is repeated in every heading.
So I added the keyword needsUXEval. So I hope that someone else can assess, whether this is a bug or not.
Looks like a bug to me as the footnote grey highlight does appear in the repeated table header and the footnote appears in both places in Word 2010. So lets set to NEW for the time being.
But in Word 2010, the comment that was added to repeated table header also appears in the original table header, so not sure how independent each repeated table header should be. So lets ask some expert.
Regina, Cor, Stuart: What is your take?

Only adding the keyword wont get Heiko to notice, as you need to also add the ux-advise email to the CC list as well. Luckily you added a meta bug, which is how i noticed. :D
a minor bug, IMO
Inherited from OOo. Initial code import of sw/source/core/layout/ftnfrm.cxx has a function IsFootnoteAllowed with the comment "no footnotes in repeated headlines".
Since the absence of the footnote number itself is intentional, I'm changing the bug title to be about the gray box needs to be removed also. I'm interested in being shown how to remove the gray block so that it can also be used for bug 54393.

Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
Well, I kindof hijacked the bug based on comment 7, and said the bug is only that the footnote was COMPLETELY removed from the following pages. It certainly was very intentionally removed, so I am now marking it as "fixed" since the field shading is now also gone.
If anyone disagrees with my assessment, they can re-open the bug.
Field shading has been gone in
