What Operating System?
What Shell?
What's in the script?

In a normal Bourne-type shell (like ksh, bash or a Posix shell) there should be no problem UNLESS the statements themselves start a new Shell or cause the current shell to exit.

Please post your code, it is likely not the if then else causing the problem
