Thanks a lot, it is much simpler! I also like that \start \stop structure
which makes the code more clear.

Just for future reference: CombinationBox extends the current image width
with the fixed value. When different image widths are used in your document,
the caption width varies as well. To keep the consistency within the
document I've chosen that simplealignedbox instead.
