I have noticed that pandoc is not quite interpreting footnotes correctly that are set in my latex template.

I'm using a template I have built for the elsarticle class, which allows me to specify authors with footnotes for affiliations, consistent with most journal formats, which looks something like this:

\begin{document}
\begin{frontmatter}
  \title{$title$}
  \author[cpb]{Carl Boettiger\corref{cor1}}
  \author[stats]{Duncan Temple Lang}
  \author[cpb]{Peter C. Wainwright}
  \ead{cboettig@ucdavis.edu}
  \cortext[cor1]{Corresponding author, cboettig@ucdavis.edu}
  \address[cpb]{Center for Population Biology, University of California, Davis, California 95616}
  \address[stats]{Department of Statistics, University of California, Davis, California 95616}
 \end{frontmatter}

(full template here).
This generates output where the footnotes are not quite correct:
example

Note that the corresponding author astrix doesn't show, and the author affiliation footnotes appear as 1, 1, 1, instead of a, b, a.

A reproducible example can be found from here (e.g. clone and run make pdf in this directory to run the pandoc).

Try changing the Makefile so that you produce a tex file with pandoc,
then cal xelatex three times on that to produce a PDF.

The PDF output option is designed for simple documents, and when you
use complex latex features, it doesn't always run the latex program
the requisite number of times.
