Prevent closing out of focus semantic merge on escape

Application will close if you press escape while it's out of focus. This is annoying if you do some back and forth between semantic merge and another application while doing you diff.

        Ok, here are my repro steps.

        1) I'm launching semantic merge from visual studio review assistant.
        2) I'm looking at the diff
        3) I go into visual studio again (without closing semantic merge)
        4) While in visual studio, I press escape.
        5) Semantic merge (which is in background) will close, obligating me to reopen it if I'm not done with my code review.

        That behaviour is somehow frustrating because navigating in visual studio does require using the escape key from times to times.

        Hi,

        Sorry, I'm afraid I don't understand the issue.

        Main windows are not closed pressing escape key. Only the dialogs are closed. The application is never closed with the escape key.

        What do you mean?

        Thanks in advance for your feedback!
