Not really - under the right circumstances (or should that be wrong?), nearly any car will ping/knock. The problem isn't that it pinged, the problem is whether or not the ECU dealt with it correctly. It sounds like it did, if it went away. Your description of the circumstances of the ping would lead me to believe that even the best operating engine/ecu would have done exactly the same thing...
