#1191 Need an option to prevent main window from exiting on escape

Usability (267)
Hari Dara

I like the convenience of hitting the <Esc> key to close windows, but it is very inconvenient to also close the main window. I am a new user and in the first 30 min of comparing two large directories over a slow RDP session, I ended up making the mistake of pressing an extra escape 5 times, every time having to do a fresh compare again. As a workaround, I unchecked the option to use <Esc>, but I would request a feature/new option to disable <Esc> only for the main window instead of its entirely.

    My apologies, if this should have been a feature request and not a bug. Personally, I would consider this a usability bug, but I am willing to close this and open a new feature request, if that is what is desired.
