[texhax] Footnote on a section heading

I am trying to put a footnote on a section heading without putting it into 
the page header.  If I don't use \protect\footnote, I get an error (extra 
} error) and if do \protect it, I get a strange result.  If the original 
footnote number is 1, then the header has a superscript 2, followed by an 
online 1, neither of which is wanted.  The section titles are separated 
from the text, so it will not do to put the footnote after the heading.

I have tried a couple of different searches on CTAN with no results.
