The problem is not with the caption itself, but that the caption is
sent to the 'list of tables' or 'list of figures' as well (i.e. it is
a moving argument). You don't want the full caption in that list
anyway, just come up with a really short caption for the list and
then do this:

\textbf{Lower panels:} dûh}
