I have the same problem. It is intermittent. I don't know the fix but I have
a useful workaround that is much better than killing the front end. I do
ctrl/alt F2 which switches to an alternate screen and then I do ctrl/alt F7
(in your case it might be F1) to get back the the xwindow with myth.
The next time I hit the escape key it works.
I tried assigning a second key to the escape function and that key
normally works but when escape doesn't work, that key won't
work either. I also have this problem on the weather page
but not most other pages. There *are* a few other pages that have
this problem but they are rarely used.
Like you, I have debian (I installed the lattest knopmyth yesterday) so maybe
this problem is related to debian. Most people here seem to have
Fedora Core 3 or 4.
