It's likely that this is the same problem, specifically the fragile
JumpPoint implementation that StuartM commented on.  If any escape-key
handler fails to check the ExitToMainMenu flag and give the expected
response, there may be some stale state left over that another
component later reacts to when it processes an escape-key event.  Are
you still seeing this behavior?
