I too no longer get different behaviour if I use only manyfoot
(that's quite confusing, I don't think that I changed something),
but if I use bigfoot instead it reappears: Verdana gives newline,
Cambria not.

I too suspected the superscripts at first, but
\makeatletter\let\@textsuperscript\relax gives normal numbers but
doesn't change the behaviour.
