i couldnt get shell to work how i wanted on linux, or to work at all on windows, so i made a [popen] which is in CVs.. you could try that, but be warned it is not threaded at all, yur pd will 'freeze' while its waiting for return..

your [shell] issue is probably not too complicated, maybe an OSX user can figure it out :)
