I was pretty sure until you asked...

So, I tested the echo command, print command, and stty command in
terminal proof jobs (cron, at).

The stty command is the source of that error type. I've seen it
before, always associated with nearby output commands, but I forget
how many people stick various stty commands into scripts without first
running tty -s.
