That was my memory too. But after dozens of keypresses I went to check
the key mappings. 'Stop playback' was mapped to ESC. Which does stop
the playback but does not offer the escape hatch menu.
I removed that mapping and restarted the frontend;
now I can escape on the first press of 'Back' on the remote.

I have no idea how that mapping got there, what is the system default
supposed to be?
