This is a feature of dired. It doesn't want to regenerate the whole
dired buffer; instead it adds the new entry at the position the cursor
is pointing to. This is because reverting the dired buffer could be
expensive. Think about a remote directory, think about many inserted
subdirectories.

Good or bad, if we want to change this behavour we would need a customer
option which would trigger the regeneration of the dired buffer
automatically.

Best regards, Michael.
