Ahhhh, I see.
Hummmm, I think we assume that Dired will add the new entry;
similarly as `dired-do-delete', which deletes the file and
the entry from the Dired buffer: in the docstring it's not mentioned
that this command drop the entry as well.
It's not mentioned in `dired-create-directory' either.

Every command prefixed with 'dired-' should add/drop buffer entries
automatically as needed.
I think this last sentence belongs to the manual more than the
docstrings (probably already there).
