Shell Commands not working in Rev 1.1.1 According to Docs

IN theory the following should work in Rev... As this is straight out of the
current documentation

on mouseUp
  put empty into fld "Terminal Output"
  set shellCommand to "/bin/tcsh"
  put shell("ls -l *.txt") into fld "Terminal Output"
  put the result after fld "Terminal Output"
end mouseUp

The above returns:

"ls -l *.txt" in Rev


In MC 2.4.3  it returns the expected:

-rw-r--r--  1 katir  staff  1425 Aug  3 16:06 test.txt

Since the doc in rev indicate this should be working....why doesn't it?
