What form of file completion are you referring to here? C-x C-f?
e.g. if i am currently in an *R* buffer, and I do C-x C-f, find-file
thinks that I am in my home directory ~ say. If I then do
and try another C-x C-f, I am still in the home directory -- whereas I
think you would like it to be /tmp.

Automatic directory syncing might be tricky, but it may not be too
hard to get something working manually. *shell* buffers can be kept
in sync using M-x shell-resync-dirs.
