Footnote back-reference not working for citations

Anonymous avatarAnonymous created an issue

With this minimal example (and possibly text added between the citation and the footnote) for citations taken from http://sphinx.pocoo.org/rest.html#citations , the back-reference linking back from the footnote to the original citation is not working right. For footnote, it works, but for citations, the id which the back-reference links to is never created in the html document. In other words, add lots of lines of text between the citation and footnote, click on the first citation and you get taken to the bottom of the page. Click on the back-link, and nothing happens, whereas one should get taken back up.

Thanks so much for sphinx, it is really awesome!! Thanks for all your work!

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
