Footnote rule appears where not wanted

I have a strange problem with footnote rules that appear when there is no
footnote beneath them. This happens when there is a footnote in the
left-hand column on a two-column page and a figure in the right-hand
column. This causes a footnote rule to appear at the bottom of the
following page, even if it's not a multicol page. (Please see attached
example.) The unwanted rule disappears if the figure on the previous page
is deleted.
My question is does anyone know of a way I can have the footnote and the
figure without the unwanted rule?
