ID: 37 🔗 Closed (Fixed) glossaries 3.04 Gentoo Linux kernel 3.8.13 Paul McDermott 2013-08-13 18:42:14 acronym longplural form not used in footnotes

## Report

When using the 'footnote' option, the footnote text for plural acronym references using \glspl{xyz} are formed by the addition of 's' rather than using a defined longplural alternative. If the footnote option is not used the correct behaviour is observed. (Comment/uncomment lines 2/3 in the example to see).
