Try this, extending Stephan suggestion:

\caption[Figure \ref{fig:whatever}]{\ }

Works fine here.

Basically, for the figure:

"whatever" is the name of the image.

the caption uses a reference to the label "fig:whatever"

using a ref to itsself in the \caption[]{} square bracket works fine  
and shows up in the list of figures. cool.
