My site was included in Dmoz a week ago - just in time. Interestingly, G shows it now in a directory search as being in a certain category, but does not show it on the category page yet.

The directory has been updated, PR bars are different too.

I don't understand this...

I posted a message in this thread about the Google Directory:
[webmasterworld.com...]

So now it appears the directory has updated, but not including my site, although it still shows for the search - just not in the category listings. I see at least 1 new site that wasn't there prior and had only been added to DMOZ in the past week - so it has definately been updated.

What gives? Should I start thinking I have some kind of penalty?

I know the category that my site was just added to has not been updated. Am I missing something?

Are you supposed to be listed in it? Try doing a search for your site name in the directory. See if it comes up, and if so, click through to your category, if you're not included thre then you are in the same situation as me.

Yes broken, same situation. Is this just because google hasn't fully updated the directory yet?

I don't think so, a site that was listed much longer after me in DMOZ has been added to Google, but not me.

What is your pagerank? My pagerank dropped 1 during the last PR update, combined with this weird behavior I'm starting to think I'm penalized in some way.

Wow, I'm amazed! Google finally added my site to the directory, six months after DMOZ added it.

No change in PR, though. Still at 3.

One of my sites was added to dmoz a few weeks ago but it doesn't come through on Google's Directory listings, though it IS there when I search the G directory.

Homepage PR is 4 (when I last looked a while back)
