Very strange.  recentf-save-list, the function that saves the list,
erases the buffer it uses before it generates the contents to save,
whereas your file looks like some bogus attempt to update an existing
file by inserting stuff in its middle.  Could it be that some optional
package, or some software unrelated to Emacs, does that?  E.g., what
is this about:

> Saving file /home/cassou/.emacs.d/recentf...
> Wrote 
> /home/cassou/.emacs.d/.undo-tree/.!home!cassou!.emacs.d!recentf.~undo-tree~
        
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Thanks.
