Pinging via shell stops my script

I've got a script (below) that refuses to execute any lines after the shell 
command is executed.   Any idea why this is happening?   If I do the shell 
via Applescript, it works.   It's only when using the new shell command in 
Rev 2.0 that it ceases to continue.   I've done other shell commands just 
fine.   The ping result is instantaneous in the Terminal application.

put "/sbin/ping -c 1" into shelltorun
put the result into data
