[texhax] footnotemark in \section{}

I am trying to put a footnote in the text of a section label.
I understand that the way here is to use \footnotemark and then \footnotetext.
But even this solution does not work:

! Argument of \@sect has an extra }.
<inserted text>
l.63 2)\footnotemark}

If I hit enter agressively, it runs to the end, and the footnotemark
gets to its proper place. But latex can not be run in batchmode as it
exits at this point.

Any ideas?
