Apart from getting the author to reduce the title to some reasonable length, 
the only way I can see to handle this is to use conditional text to hide the 
fragments that should not appear in the LOF.  The LOF will be set to HIDE the 
"don't include" text and all the chapters will show it.

This will trigger warnings when you update or print the files, but you actually 
want the condition settings to be different for the LOF file, so you may safely 
ignore the messages.
