Since this is obviously a bug, it might be worth reporting it to WRI. 
Send them a complete notebook with error messages - which have become 
garbled in your message. The most obvious workround is to write out you 
data to a file using


and then use Import to retrieve the file. Obviously it would be better 
to put the file somewhere definite in your file system - not create a 
temporary file, which might simply re-create the problem!

It is amusing that Mathematica would seem to use the above method 
internally as an implementation for ImportString!
