Sun 03 Jul 2022 05:41:10 AM UTC, original submission:  

As observed with the example input provided in the original submission of bug #61675: "on typesetters, the baselines of the columns don't align--there's a sliver of extra space at the top of the second."  This still happens with the latest tmac/e.tmac.

(As an unsurprising consequence of this, the baselines of the lowermost footnotes in the two columns are also misaligned--but by more than the column text itself.  This may be another manifestation of the same bug, or a separate one.)

The bug does not appear if the footnotes are taken out.  (This can be done by changing the example input's "\\nN%11=0" to "\\nN%11=13", making the condition always false.)
