Short Doesn't Work

I am having problems with the Short[] function.
 
In v3, the following,

randDir:=2 Random[Integer]-1;
randWalk[n_]:=NestList[#+randDir&,0,n-1];
(walk=randWalk[1000]  ) // Short

returns

<<1>>

I was expecting more than this.  It still doesn't work if I
use Short[expr,5].

What's going on?
