Right now, searching for certain towns in the UK inside the Google Directory is generating a SERPS results page where the links to the Google Directory have United Kingdom all in lower case, with the result that clicking to go to that directory area fails.
For example, the SERPS might offer up

[directory.google.com...]

If the URL in the address bar is edited to capitalise the spelling of United Kingdom, then the page works.

It looks ever so broken!

If you have access to the ODP RDF files at [rdf.dmoz.org ] perhaps you could verify if this bad data is in their files (say, anytime in the last 2 months) or if the bug is with Google only...
