What you are experiencing might be related to datacentres. How long have you
seen this behaviour? When treating links, images, PageRank and so forth,
Google do not count the www prefix.

Try http://www.rustybrick.com/pagerank-prediction.php as a proxy. It appears
to differ though pretty much as you suggested. This is pretty odd.

http://www.google.co.uk/search?sourceid=mozclient&num=50&q=link:h ...

gives 47 results

http://www.google.co.uk/search?num=50&hl=en&q=link%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2 ...

gives 8 results.

I have no reasonable explanation, but somebody else will. Let's wait and
