Footnotes in the Wordcount?

I have a real problem with Scrivener, in that it is counting the inline footnotes into the wordcount of the project target (in the footer). I need a text-only wordcount visible for every subdocument. This is such a problem for me, I may have to abandon Scrivener and go back to Word. Please help.

The Project -> Project Statistics -> Options tab gives you the option to include/exclude footnotes.

Note that those settings will affect the progress bar, but not Scrivener’s running total word count. (The one that shows even if the progress bar is turned off.)
