[OS X TeX] Problems since latest i-installer update

since my latest update to i-installer's TeXLive package, I'm seeing  
problems. I'm not absolutely sure that this related to the update,  
but I can't think of anything else I changed. The code didn't give me  
any problems for quite some time, but suddenly I get errors of all kind.

The following minimal example:

\caption{ Poe\index{Poe, Edgar Allan} prangen prominent auf der  

Somehow, the combination of \label and \index inside the figure  
environment causes LaTeX problems. I'm getting stuff like this:

! Undefined control sequence.
\\->\let \reserved at e
                      \relax \let \reserved at f \relax \@ifstar {\let  
l.24 \label{fig:si}

! Undefined control sequence.
\\->\let \reserved at e \relax \let \reserved at f
                                              \relax \@ifstar {\let  
l.24 \label{fig:si}

! Argument of \Hy at tempa has an extra }.
<inserted text>
l.24 \label{fig:si}

Runaway argument?
\@captype {\@firstoftwo {\let \reserved at e \vadjust \let \reserved at f  
\nobreak \E
! Paragraph ended before \Hy at tempa was complete.
<to be read again>
l.24 \label{fig:si}


I don't really know where this comes from. I think it is related to  
hyperref, but I don't really know. Maybe there is a newer version in  
the TeXLive tree which doesn't like what I do here.

Note, that this only gives me some error messages in this small  
example, but in my thesis (which is a quite complex document), the  
results are worse. There is an additional package with garbage at the  
beginning and sometimes compiling fails completely.

Advice is much appreciated
