<added> I am seeing less DMOZ clones showing up this time, but more links from internal pages are showing. Also from my selection of sites I can see many links from the same site showing up</added>
Never mind ... I am tired and made a stupid mistake. Anyone who read my original post should ignore it entirely.
Suffice it to say that yes, there has been a link update (whether or not PR has been updated yet) and I am seeing differences in the SERPS.
The Google directory is also shifting. I used to place second from last in my directory listing, I am now smack in the middle of the pack. Since the listing is supposed to be in PR order, I take that as a positive.
I also agree with the statement about the quality of the links. I've got some decent links for a couple of months now that still didn't show up in this latest update.
That's quite an update! Sites which show PageRank 5 in the toolbar have a PageRank 7 bar in the directory. Okay, this isn't the same throughout the directory but it seems like the directory update has been very generous indeed.

Not yet, but Googleguy is back after a very, very long absence so maybe they've finished partying and are ready to get back to work?
Backlinks have updated for me too. In fact, they went down slightly - but this is a new website, so I'm not discouraged.
The backlink count is never actually accurate so I wouldn't really pay attention to it. The only reason I pointed it out was because Google was actually doing something for a change.
Backlinks "updated", maybe not as completely pukey but still just a collection of useless idiotbacklinks.
Ummm ... I'm not sure I quite understand that. Maybe you should lay off the vodka whilst posting? ;)
