Not a bug. Evaluating an expression causes its value to be displayed
in the echo area. find-file returns the buffer it creates, and that's
what you see. Check out the section in the ELisp manual about the
buffer object reading syntax.
The "(New file)" message gets overwritten by that, but you can still
find it in the *Messages* buffer.
I'm closing this bug.
