[O] Multiple footnote references in included file

Hi org mode community,

I have my thesis divided into several chapters each with its own org file. I was trying to use org's Include function to compile a pdf of the complete draft using a master file. However, I found that if there was more than one reference to the same footnote in one of my chapter files, the exporter would complain that a footnote was undefined.

In my case this occurred because I keep old versions of chapter sections under an archive heading, and at least up til now I did not change the names of footnotes, when I copied material over from one draft to the next. It seemed  strange that it would even register these older references, because I exclude these headlines from export, but it seems to do so. The problem also occurs if both references are in a headline that is supposed to be exported.

I am using org version 8.3.1 from elpa, and I am running Emacs compiled for Windows 64. The problem can be reproduced with the following minimal examples.

Suppose this is the master file:

---- Begin Master.org ---
* Here is my master file
It has an include command.
#+INCLUDE: "./Included.org"
--- End Master.org ---

If I try to export this file it will throw up an error with either one of the following include files.
--- begin Included.org ---
#+EXCLUDE_TAGS: noexp archive notes
#+ARCHIVE: ::* Archived
* This is a headline.

This is some text. [fn:dd1cd1f9]
* Archive                                                        :archive:
** This is a headline (draft 0)
Here is a previous version of the text to which I affixed the same
footnote. [fn:dd1cd1f9]
* Footnotes

[fn:dd1cd1f9] Here is the footnote

--- end Included.org ---

--- begin Included.org ---
* This is a headline.
This is some text. [fn:dd1cd1f9]

Here is some more text to which I wish to affix the same footnote.  [fn:dd1cd1f9]
* Footnotes

[fn:dd1cd1f9] Here is a footnote

--- end Included.org ---

I get the following backtrace:
