That happens on my system once in a while as well. However since I can't
reproduce it at will, I haven't been able to track it down why it happens
sometimes, and why not. All I can say it isn't necesarrily related to your
backup restoration. Just a coincidence (at least so far until a real
diagnosis can be made).

Oh, there is a way to get past the ^M thing. Unfortuantely when I last got
it I just starting hitting all kinds of keys without seeing what I did, at
one point it just continued as it should. I know not very helpful but there
you go, perhaps if you have time try some key combinations and see if you
can figure it out.
