newlines on stderr

our project is, since a couple of weeks, experiences problems that seem to originate from 'random' newlines in output written to stderr. An example of this is :

these newlines can appear even in the middle of number, and disrupt tests such as
./stockfish bench 2> out.txt
grep "foo 123" out.txt

As far as we know, this only happens in the appveyor environment. Is there any reason/workaround for this ?

    Not sure i can say the reason for the strange output when run from powershell but its probably more predictable if you use cmd to generate the out.txt file by running

    - stockfish bench 2> out.txt
    after cd src/%CONFIGURATION%
