The 'problem' of the escape key is not a feature of angband, it's a feature of certain linux terminal modes, like for instance if you connect to X using putty on a shell account you have somewhere

Is it really so hard to press the next key down?

Now, i dont know for others, but i am from germany with a german keyboard layout and for me, i need to press ´`´ instead of Esc ...
And for this, i need to press the following keys:

Shift (hold)
`
Space

This is, "Hold Shift", press the ´ key and then the Spacebar to get a `
And this is a quite bad sequence to type for something i need so very often ...

:-(


Would be happy to "fix" this - whereever and however
