I don't know if there's a bug filed, but this is listed in the TWikiDraw 

The problem is caused by a text object containing a newline.  When the 
user enters a newline into a text object, it generates a spurious ^M in 
the source which confuses the .. uh, parser?  I found that I could get the 
drawing to load if I edited the .draw file by hand and removed the newline 

This is actually the reason I subscribed to this list, but I think it's a 
TWikiDraw problem rather than a MoinMoin problem.
