Hi, about a month ago I bought some bitcoins on MtGox.  I have decided to move my coins to my computer.  I installed the bitcoin client from bitcoin.org and looked at my address.  I then went to MtGox and initiated a test withdrawal.  Shortly thereafter I had one fewer bitcoin on MtGox.  I have been hoping for that bitcoin to show up on the bitcoin client but it has not.  It has been over 24 hours.  I have checked my MtGox history and it says that they sent me a bitcoin.  It shows the address that they sent it to, which is the same that I am receiving to.  Is MtGox broken?

On mtgox.com
06/03/11 15:17   Withdraw BTC   1wqtFZSdMdxBwut2STY9tqN4sayKamFmM   -1   0   (redacted)   (redacted)

On bitcoin client
Your Bitcoin Address: 1wqtFZSdMdxBwut2STY9tqN4sayKamFmM
Balance: 0.00
5 connections 121065 blocks 0 transactions

Thanks!

Your client needs to download the blockchain before you'll see anything (currently 128589 blocks).
If the number of blocks is not increasing try forwarding port 8333, 5 connections sounds like you haven't.

The above posted is correct.
According to block explorer, your 1 BTC has been confirmed, and should show up once you have the block chain.

Thank you very much.  I actually had a hunch that that might be the case but after so many hours I assumed that I would have the block chain by now, and then I forgot about my theory.  My block count is increasing and it looks like I am at about 94%.  So at that rate it should be an hour or so.  Thanks both of you!
