[texhax] Misplaced footer with multicol and fancyhdr

I see footers with fancyhdr.sty (March 22, 2005, v3.2) are
wrongly shifted toward the upper direction in the mulitcols
env defined in the latest multicol.sty (2015/08/19 v1.8n).
I had no problem with multicol.sty v1.8i in TL2014.

\usepackage{multicol} % v1.8n
\usepackage{fancyhdr} % v3.2

This behavior is due to the change in multicol.sty between
v1.8i and v1.8j, which adds \boxmaxdepth\maxdepth in the
definition of \multi at column@out. It seems that \boxmaxdepth
has affected not only splitting routine itself but also
routines _between_ splitting (such as header and footer).

Is this a bug in fancyhdr.sty, or in multicol.sty? Or am I
doing something wrong?
