Interesting. That means, you don't get the warning message?

More on this further below. I removed Debian's TL 2007 packages few weeks ago and net-installed TL 2008. I kept the default paths and let the package install symlinks too. Everything else seems to be working. I never used \cite in \caption commands with TL 2007, so don't know whether it would have worked there.

.log file is attached. Result of .lot files:

With \protect:
\select at language {english}
\contentsline {table}{\numberline {0.1}{\ignorespaces Test Caption. \cite {Weber_2007}}}{3}{table.0.1}

Without protect:
\select at language {english}
\contentsline {table}{\numberline {0.1}{\ignorespaces Test Caption. \cite {Weber_2007}}}{3}{table.0.1}

The one that comes with TL 2008, apparently version 8.3 from 02/02/09.

Didn't know about this package. Tried it this morning by simply replacing natbib with hypernat. I receive the same warning, and in the list o
name and year are not linked to bibliography at all.
