No, what the xterm showed you was junk with part of the text
overwritten because of the ^M. You just didn't notice because the
overwritten text didn't happen to be the bit you were interested in.

You can't expect to cleanly view text that contains control characters
at a shell prompt. Pipe it to less or something.
