Yes, quite sure.  This doesn't relate to the inability to have lists of
figures and lists of tables.  By gutting the \label macro, figcaps breaks the
ability to say "see figure~\ref{fig:myfigure}" and get "see figure 1".
Commenting out this change to the label macro makes such references work
perfectly.
