That is not exactly an expression of great confidence in the

I'd strongly recommend that you don't wait till Tuesday with sleeping.

If your problem is actually the same as in latex/3719, you could try
using bigfoot.sty from
just loading it (in its current state) should fix the problem of
jumbled footnotes (the current code has other drawbacks at the moment,
like not giving always correct headers and footers, which is why it is
not yet released).
However, it would be unreasonable to expect lineno.sty to work with
it: even when the output-hookery stuff was cleaned up and implemented
"properly", I would be skeptical that it would cooperate without
involving more amount of work than can be reasonably done before you
ought to sleep. I'll probably look into it when I get the rest of the
problems solved, but it is likely that I'd decide to rather try doing
the line numbers with PostScript hackery or similar expedients.
