RE: Can I make "cd" in shell work like eshell?

Shell mode tries its best to keep track of your current directory, but it can't 
always.

You can synch shell-mode with the shell inside it by M-<RET> (M-x 
shell-resync-dirs).

Be careful though! You have to be at a shell prompt since emacs runs a command 
and then uses its output to figure out the current directory.
