[xep-support] column-wide footnotes and vertical spacing

I'm using the column-wide footnotes extension (Thank you, David, for 
correcting my cl syntax) and am seeing an oddity in the way the 
foonotes are spaced from the body of the column. For debugging purposes 
I put a leader in my xsl-footnote-separator block (0pt before-space and 
after-space) and so can see that the spacing between it and the column 
body is irregular. I can't see any pattern. In one case, the separator 
was rendered --without footnote-- on the page, then rendered again 
--with footnote-- on the following page.

I've looked at whether the column itself was breaking in the middle or 
end of a block: No difference. And setting the body blocks' orphan and 
widow values to zero makes no difference. It looks more like the body 
column is stopping short rather than the footnote reference area 
starting late. But I also notice single-paragraph footonotes (not long 
ones) sometimes spanning page breaks while longer ones are rendered 
intact elsewhere -- as if the footnote reference area were variable.

Has anyone seen this before? Can you offer ways to debug or workaround
