Crystal clear explanation!

Here is another: insert


near the first \chapter or \section command in your document that you  
presume will produce an entry in the table of contents. This should  
insert the relevant command *inside* the .toc file, so it will be  
executed at the wnated moment.

I never tried this one, but it should work, I hope. I tried other  
inserts, such as a \newpage so that the contents does not break page  
in the middle of a chapter, which I found ugly, and it worked.
