A bug for recently created ODP categories?

Is anyone experiencing this weird bug:

I'm using version 1.1.62-deleon/fr of Google Toolbar.

If I open the ODP page of a recently created category (not yet imported in the Google Directory), Google Toolbar says the page belongs to the following category:

Top/World/Russian/?/?/WWW/?

Open the Dmoz homepage and try with the following category:

World/Italiano/Scienza/Scienze_Sociali/Linguaggi_e_Linguistica/Lingue_Naturali/

You just need to open the ODP page for this category and check that your toolbar is configured to show the relevant Google Directory category.

confirmed. i think this is a bug. it's only on dmoz. if i open a page where a category does not exists in google at all, the button will be greyed out. the toolbar developers should check their algo ;).

Maybe here's the reason why that's happening: if you try to search for ODP in Google you get as first result the dmoz server as listed in the russian category:

World > Russian > Компьютеры > Интернет > WWW > Каталоги

This Russian error has been there for at least three months. I noticed it in December.
