It's a timestamp, though I can't say how it is to be interpreted.

Looks fine in Gmail - kinda cool cursive script that I'm guessing is
right to left...

I wondered myself about that - I did some googling and all I came up
with was this post
http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-828673.html that says it's
seconds since boot to 6 decimal places but doesn't have any links to
backing material. And, his own message seems to indicate there's more
to it than that. If anybody has more info I'd be interested too.

It's a time stamp, starting with boot up.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malayalam_language

As far as I can tell it's written left to right (look the first letter for
malayalam in the first paragraph and the list of consonants further
down).
