It seems more worthwhile to filter each string before it is written.

A function to do so could be something like:
void strip(char *string)
   char *tmp = string;

     if((int)(*tmp) != STRIP_CHAR)
        *string++ = *tmp;

   *string = '\0';      

Where STRIP_CHAR is the ascii value of ^M (is it 13?).  This should
work, but since it is off the top of my head I don't know.
