[luatex] \localleftbox, \localrightbox and \footnotes

Hi all,

The following example shows that the content of \localleftbox leaks into
footnotes.  The same is true with \localrightbox.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
\input luaotfload.sty
\font\myfont={name:\myfontname} at 12pt


Bla bla bla\footnote{*}{Foo}

Bla bla bla\footnote{**}{Bar}
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Is it a known feature or a bug?  Coding
{\localleftbox{}\footnote{**}{Bar}} is an option, not very pleasant though…

Best regards,
Daniel Flipo
