This is expected behaviour.  The file cr.txt contains the escape code ESC-Z (Escape followed by 'Z') which causes the terminal emulator to report its type (DEC Vt model) back to the terminal.  The shell isn't expecting this so it just prints the returned string as though it were input from the users' keyboard.  You can see the same result in xterm, gnome-terminal and the Linux console although possibly with different values for the type string.

See the "C1 (8-Bit) Control Characters" section on
