Here's a workaround:
o Click in the image to select it: you will see the eight green 
handles.  Make sure you select the image and not the frame that 
contains the image and its caption.
o Cut the image (Edit | Cut or Ctrl+X).
o Click the edge of the frame that now contains just the caption to select
it. o Press Backspace to delete the frame.
o Paste the cut image (Edit | Paste or Ctrl+V).
o Now create a new "Illustration" caption for the new image.
o If necessary, press F9 to update the fields to renumber the 
illustrations automatically.

Is it really necessary to remove also frame?

My test case: three images with captions. First is Illustration 1, second is 
Drawing 1 and third is Illustration 2. I have removed Drawing 1 caption inside 
frame; only text, image and frame was still there. Then I selected image and 
added "Illustration" caption. Effect: first image had Illustration 1, second 
Illustration 2 and third Illustration 3.
Then I inserted fourth image and it had caption Illustration 4.

It seems to be desired behavior, although my test case was so simple, I might 
have missed something important here (again :( ).
