[OS X TeX] re: longtable

Now that I removed the longtable environment from within a table 
environment, things are working reasonably well. Except longtable does 
not seem to be a float, or at least I found nothing in the LaTeX 
Companion or in the longtable documentation to indicate how to force 
the longtable to start at the top of the next page.

I have a short (normal) table and the start of a longtable on the same 
page, because of the problem reported above. Both are narrow, taking 
about 2/3 of the width of a page. But the caption of the normal table 
is as wide as the normal text on that page, whereas the caption of the 
longtable is only a bit wider than the width of the longtable. This is 
quite ugly (is it OK to include screen shots in messages to this list? 
Or LaTeX codes to achieve the result is better?). Is there a way to 
control the width of table captions?
