Well, I run crafty from the command line to do my tests, i.e. after each line I
press ENTER which is sent as \n, but I am under the impression that this is not
the problem. It recognizes all other commands anyway ....

Here is the sequence I type :

level 0 1 10

And after the last one I get that invalid move thing

If you run your crafty from the command line and type the above lines does your
crafty accepts the move ? Are you under windows or linux ?
