Your example doesn't work for me, I get:

! Package fontspec Error: {
    "Linux Libertine O/ICU" doesn't appear to have the glyph
corresponding to "

(with LinLibertine_Re-2.8.14.otf)

Apart from this: footnote means the use of \textsuperscript and this
reminds me that there was a bug somewhere in xltxtra related to
superscripts. So check if you have the newest version, and also check if
the problem disappear if you use only fontspec + xunicode.
