I second Roger's recommendation that you drop the captions, with his
caveat that it depends on just what you're doing and the type of
documentation. 

If you must have captions, Mike's suggestion to use a table resolves
both the caption and alignment issues. 

Another approach would be to set up a side head to the right of the text
column, sized appropriately for your graphics. Put the caption, if you
use one, and anchored frame in a side head pgf. You'll probably have to
experiment some with alignment, etc., but once you have the pgfs defined
properly, it should work every time, with the caption and graphic always
having the same relationship, alignment-wise, to the related text. 

HTH!
