It may be confusing but it is no different from having this case:

  address@hidden:~$ printf "Hello" ; printf "\r"

Question: Where did the output go?  Answer: It was printed but then it
was covered by the prompt and effectively hidden.  Here I am using two
printf statements because your program didn't include one but in the
operation of gdm and emacs there is almost certainly one, which is
represented here by the second printf.

But since you say it didn't make any difference then this point isn't
relevant.  But at least you can see why I asked for the newline.

At this point I do not have any more information.  Good luck!
