with the otherwise very useful bigfoot package, I'm regularly getting an undesired result: Sometimes, footnotes appear one page too early.

Here is an MWE (simplified/updated 2017-09-13):

\documentclass[oneside]{book}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\usepackage[paperwidth=120mm, paperheight=213mm, %
    left=17mm,right=15mm,top=20mm,bottom=15mm, 
]{geometry}

\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{bigfoot}

\setlength{\parindent}{5.0mm}
\setlength{\parskip}{0mm}

\begin{document}

\lipsum[1-2]

\lipsum*[1]\footnote{Hallo}

\end{document}

enter image description here

Removing \usepackage{bigfoot} gives the desired result (but I need bigfoot for other reasons, see the thread footnotes and widow/orphan control: how to avoid big whitespace on page bottom?):

enter image description here

This is a very fundamental case that I think should not go wrong. Can anyone help?

    I see a similar problem with \documentclass[11pt]{book}, so it is independent from KOMA-Script. – Schweinebacke Sep 12 '17 at 18:26
  • Maybe try \usepackage[para]{manyfoot} instead of bigfoot. I just tried it (using Schweinebacke's modifications), and it did place the footnote on the second page. – Michael Palmer Sep 12 '17 at 18:58
  • I removed scrbook from the MWE. – LaTechneuse Sep 13 '17 at 22:21
  • I facing the same problem. Have you managed to solve it? – Denys Potapov Dec 25 '18 at 13:12
