The -i option for ping is documented as interval between ping requests. But
the sleep was also applied after all the requested pings already sent out.
As result, the user had to wait additional time until the statistics for
the (limited) ping test was printed.

Just skip the last sleep in case there will be no next ping packet to avoid
this problem.
