started with an .rtf file that LO didn't like. I selected the entire file
with Ctrl-A, copied it (Ctrl-C) and then pasted it special back onto itself
as "unformatted text." It worked just as well as copying to a text editor.
Kinda slick actually.
But, with either method, I lost the contents of my footnotes. To date, I
haven't found a way with LO to convert formatted text to plain unformatted
text and keep footnotes.

That's why that wasn't my suggestion!
in order to be sure of eliminating whatever might be causing the 'kink',

That's not true. But in any case, you are presumably suggesting that
a fresh document would anyway be necessary with your round-the-houses
route via other software.
Again, you are very welcome to go the long way around if you
prefer. You will not be the only person to do so.
