It adds a newline, that's like a space. See this example:

\starttext
Bazaar revision \cldcontext{os.resultof"echo 123"}.

Bazaar revision \cldcontext{os.resultof"echo -n 123"}.

Bazaar revision \cldcontext{os.resultof"dummy=`bzr revno`; echo -n $dummy"}.

Bazaar revision \cldcontext{os.resultof"bzr revno | tr -d '\\n'"}.
\stoptext
