Aye, that is exactly true for the figure environment.
However, I was referring to the figure* environment (note the asterisk)
which is used when setting a figure that spans a full page in a document
with multiple columns. Under these conditions, I recall there being some
gotchas such as the figure having to appear at the top or bottom of the page
and one pagebreak having to pass before it appears.
