Subj! (not much to describe, so bitch please ask questions if necessary)
Tracked down the scope change that aurora_footer_js was supposed to be doing (but was completely missing).
Tell me if this patch fixes it for you.
I didn't quite use the patch supplied (thanks for supplying one), but this will be fixed in the next release.
This issue has no child issues.
