That is incorrect.  "move e2e4" matches the latest winboard/xboard standard,
which has been around for at least a couple of years...

You do not send "move g1f3" to crafty.  Again, by the xboard standard
you only send the move "g1f3".

Sending "move" is wrecking everything.  Please read the specs _carefully_
and you will see what is wrong.
