Tracking down CSS bug

I am in the process of working on two different, but similar design themes.  If you look at the greyish footer here http://bit.ly/ZpOjXj, it looks as it should.  If you look here http://bit.ly/ZpOjXj, it's a mess (and, granted, I've been messing with it a bunch now, trying to get it to work).  What am I missing?  Thank you!

In the working one, there is a footer element in the wrap div, then the real footer is given a negative top margin to move it up

In the non working one you have the footer completely seperate so it isn't contained by the wrapper

The working one is a crazy way to do it, you may as well just have the footer in the wrapper to start with.
