I get Mailman job logs that look like this:

Where does the '^M' come from, and is it bad that it's there?

It's a <CR>. Your Mailman crontab file is a MS-Dos format file with
<CR><LF> line endings instead of *nix format with <LF> line endings.

If your crons run OK, it's not a real problem, but if it were me, I'd
fix the crontab file.

I'll do that. I thought it might be something like that, but I guess I
was expecting "\n", not "^M". Will fix it now. Thanks.
