My answer, given in comp.text.tex:

* The environment `center' is outside the *floating* environment
* \caption is inside a group (\textit), therefore \label references
  the entry that was active before that group.
  But \caption inside \textit doesn't look quite sound.
  The font of a caption can easily be changed using the
  package `caption', e.g.
