odt file to demonstrate the bug

Problem description: When you use footnotes in sections with two or more columns, the size of the section changes - but it shouldn't.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open new Writer-Document
2. Click on Insert > Section > Columns. Select 2 Columns. Click on Insert.
3. Put the cursor into the created section. Click on Insert > Footnote/Endnote. Click OK.

Current behavior:In the moment when you insert the footnote, the section grows to the size of one page instead of staying small.

Expected behavior: The footnote should be on the foot of the page (as ist happens), but the size of the section should not change.

Comment 1 A (Andy) 2012-12-26 23:26:12 UTC
reproducible with LO 3.6.4.3. (Win7 Home, 64bit)

After inserting a footnote the sections grows to one page and in addition, a further page is added.

Rephrased:
Footnotes in sections with columns do not appear outside of the section at the bottom of the page when Format -> Sections -> Options -> Footnotes/Endnotes -> Collect at end of text is unchecked.

If Collect at end of text is checked, then the footnote will appear at the bottom of the corresponding column without changing the size of the section.
