The next step is to verify that the auto-revert-handler function is
called every 5 sec as expected.  Can you add to its beginning some
printout that, say, displays the value returned by
current-time-string, and see if that function gets invoked regularly?

If it does, then it should call buffer-stale-function, which Dired
sets to dired-buffer-stale-p, which should return non-nil, since you
say dired-directory-changed-p returns non-nil.  And then the buffer
should be reverted.

Please see which parts of this do not work in your case.

Thanks.
