MACHINE: IBM-compatible Pentium IV

OS: Linux (Debian Etch or Sid)

COMPILER: none (using Debian package)

INPUT FILES: foo.tr (attached)

COMMAND LINE: groff -mm foo.tr # using groff version of mm

The footnote reference occurs with exactly enough space
remaining on the page for the footnote. The end-of-page
trap is apparently clobbered; text continues over the page
boundary and the footnote appears on the next page. As
expected, if the footnote-reference line is moved one unit
higher or lower, it works properly with the footnote
appearing on the same or next page, respectively.
