I don't know if it helps you but the following 
works as expected (the source code does not 
search for the string "\n" but for the actual 
carriage return):
$ ffmpeg -f lavfi -i "color=white:d=10,drawtext=text='two
> lines'" out.avi

(The "> " is printed by my shell when I hit "Enter" 
after "two".)
