When I view my links in admin, the Link ID field shows the category drop down box rather that the link id. I've looked and looked at the links.def. I can't locate the problem. Any ideas?

This is what my links.def looks like at present:

# -------------
# Links

# Links Manager
#
# File: links.def
# Description: Contains the database definition for links.
