First, thank you to all Org-mode contributors, it is a marvelous productivity tool and truly lives up to its motto of managing life in plain text.

Now on to a possible bug. :) I have noticed that when I include named footnotes within an unordered list, the LaTeX exported file has problems, and mixes in the text (after the first word) of a named footnote directly within the text of the unordered list item. Named footnotes that are in ordered lists are exported without a problem.

This bug may be the same one that was described in this message, though the OP didn't provide follow-up information:
...also, I think the problem does not happen with numbered footnotes in unordered lists, as the single response message by Matt Lundin showed.

I'm using a current (git-pulled as of this morning) version of Org-mode, with Emacs 23.2.50. An example .org file to test (and hopefully reproduce) the problem is included below; the problem can be seen by doing an export to LaTeX (with optional view in PDF).

Thanks in advance for any help/debugging,

* Intro
This is the opening paragraph, without much to say at the moment.  But
forsooth, let us praise Lisp.

* A Bit About John McCarthy
- Lisp was created and designed by John McCarthy.[fn:Lisp_origin]
- McCarthy's first publication on Lisp was "Recursive Functions of
  Symbolic Expressions and Their Computation by Machine (Part

* Lisp's Amazingness
1. What's amazing about Lisp is how small the core language is; it's
  the computing equivalent of Maxwell's equations! Originally McCarthy
  described just seven functions and two special forms:
  - atom, car, cdr, cond, cons, eq, quote, lambda, label
2. 50 years on, other programming languages are finally beginning to
   approach Lisp's power and generality.[fn:Graham_on_Lisp]
