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).
