Did you mean only that a particular package is not listed?

Or did you mean that if you use a particular package the help window (buffer 
`*Packages*') is not shown?

Again, same question as above.

If you mean only that Dired+ is not listed, then
I understand: It's not available in an ELPA repo;
it's available from Emacs Wiki.

But if you mean that requiring Dired+ prevents
`list-packages' from displaying, then I don't
see that.  I use Dired+, and `list-packages'
works for me.

Or maybe there's more to the problem than just
that `list-packages' doesn't display `*Packages*'?

A priori, I don't think dired+.el should have
any effect on `list-packages'.
