Thanks for your reply,
Well, I believe it has been in Google for about 1 week now. I am just judging this by roughly the first time I have seen it appear in the cached version of the page. Does it take some time for google to record it as a backlink even if it has already seen it on the page?

I just noticed this as well with my site (listed in my profile). I'm in DMOZ (PR 6), yet don't show up in link:. Some other sites on the same page (above), do.

I'm seeing a PR4 site not in the Google Directory, which means there is a good chance it is too early to expect the dmoz backlink to show and it will show up next update.

steveb, I didn't understand your response. Could you clarify?
(My site has been in dmoz for over a year. Is it possible that Google ignores the link for other reasons?)

The site in your profile is PR4.

Google will not show every backlink. For a better account of them check alltheweb.

Even alltheweb doesn't show all the links (like the dmoz one).

I have a link to my site from a page with the same problem. The links to the first ten or so sites seem normal, but the links to the other twenty or so seem not to count in Google as backlinks, and, in fact, not to pass any PR (since the site under mine has been linked to for as long as mine has, probably six months by now, and has zero PR).
The referring site in my example, too, is a links.htm page. Very odd. I wonder if Google is getting hung up and not finishing spidering some pages because of oddnesses in the linking code somewhere...?
