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:

\caption[really short caption]{\textbf{Upper panels:}~bladiblah

\textbf{Lower panels:} dûh}
