I don't know how recent the change is but I'm seeing much better reporting depth for incoming links from Google WMT tools today. Yahoo site explorer still reports many more but only allows you to export the first 1000.
Update: It's a sad day when a web site has more comment link spam than proper links (10:1) but the site still ranks so Google must be seeing past it so credit to them...
Last month, I had one page leap to the top with hundreds of links, and then disappear a few days later. Inexplicable.
These links are bogus, as far as a metric. You never know what the criteria is, and the criteria is constantly changing. I no longer place any value on this report. I continue looking only for entertainment purposes, to see what limited, random results I am going to see next. Google simply displays "some links" - that's it. No conclusions whatsoever can be drawn regarding your links changing "over time".
