Ultimate Branding Upgrade Trashed My Footer Content

Hi.
Your upgrade trashed my footer. In the footer my site repeated (header of my site appeared in the footer) If I emptied out the footer content area everything came back (just not footer). If I entered ANYTHING in the footer content box (I entered "this is my footer"), the problem returned. So, I had to downgrade (luckily I had done a backup) back to 1.8.3
