The path listing isn't updated if you sit in the directory.  If you change to
another directory and then back to the parent directory of foodir - bash will
have updated the tree so that tab completion can work properly. 
mkdir/touch/chmod are not internal to bash and have no conduit of letting bash
know that the directory listing was updated.
