I don't think this will help your open dialog box problem, but if you ever
need the finder to refresh after doing something in the terminal, try the
attached applescript.  I have this script on the top right of every finder
window in case it doesn't update.  Screenshot attached also.  Here's the
script if you want to save it yourself:

    tell application "Finder" to update items of front window
end try

I found it online somewhere though I don't remember where.
