Check your routing tables !
or
It seems that the ICMP packets do not return to your host.
Are you firewalling ICMP ?

 try $ ping -c 1 10.1.1.1
 
 (or any other non reachable system) and all i get is
 the ping command just sits there and sits there and
 sits there ...). all i can do is terminate it with ^C
 (not really very scriptable).
