The problem is this. When you add a caption which consists of a number of lines of text and when you also add an index refering to these captions then this index has a number of entries that are very long. LaTeX has a nice solution to this problem. You can provide a ordinairy caption to an object. This ordinairy caption then appears above/below the object. In addition you can also define a "short caption" that will be used when generating an index. That way you can make a nice and long caption detailing for example the contents of a figure and still have a terse line of text in the index refering to the figure.

A workaround: provided you have caption like this "Illustration 12. The Pirth' Chart - The typical evolution of a population in a protected area", you can select "The Pirth' Chart" or any piece of text and mark it as extra TOC entry. ES->BH: it would be a usefull enhancement, like the "Short name" available for bibliographies.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
