[Continuing/improving previous ...]
In the present [!? half a year ago] case of the tie,
\index -- the Standard LaTeX version --
\writes the latter as an "other" character --
when \index appears in ordinary text;
it expands the tie in \writing -- when it appears in a footnote
-- hence different index entries, and hence my recommendation
of the 'index' package, which makes the tie be \written
as an "other" character in any case.
