Herb Schulz did similar work for including Mac OS symbols (such as  
the Apple key symbol) in TeX documents, so there should be a way. See  
his applekeys package <http://homepage.mac.com/herbs2/.Public/

It looks like you're using the hyperref package, and the error  
message relates to a version of \caption modified by this package.  
The hyperref package is very useful, but I've found extremely  
difficult to understand/debug/customize the code of its versions of  
standard LaTeX commands.

That said, the above message might as well be caused by a lack of  
\protect'ion. Have you attempted to insert a \protect before the  
\includegraphics? I remember a time when many LaTeX commands (such as  
\ref) needed to be \protect'ed when put inside a \caption, though  
things have got much better.

Hope this helps,
