I have the following settings for a lstlisting:

  numbersep=5pt,                  % how far the line-numbers are from the code
  backgroundcolor=\color{white},      % choose the background color. You must
  showspaces=false,               % show spaces adding
  showstringspaces=false,         % underline spaces
  showtabs=false,                 % show tabs within strings
  frame=single,                   % adds a frame
  rulecolor=\color{black},        % if not set, the frame-color
  tabsize=2,                      % sets default tabsize to 2 spaces
  captionpos=b,                   % sets the caption-position to bottom
  breaklines=true,                % sets automatic line breaking
  breakatwhitespace=false,        % sets if automatic breaks should only happen
  title=\lstname,                   % show the filename of files
                                  % also try caption instead of title
  keywordstyle=\color{blue},          % keyword style
  commentstyle=\color{dkgreen},       % comment style stringstyle=\color{mauve},

The problem occurs when I add a listing in the end of a page. Sometimes it happens that the caption of the listing shows up on the next page - without any code:

new page without code but caption

I do want to have page-breaks in my listings but I don't want to have breaks before the caption.

how would I use that in order to keep page-breaks, but avoid breaking before the caption? –  ele Sep 9 '12 at 16:59
