I believe this is related to the inconsistent use of ESC and ESCAPE in the interface.txt file. Try changing all instances of ESC to ESCAPE.

Tried changing ESC to ESCAPE in the interface.txt, still happens. It made it so the screen shows "ESCAPE: Back" rather than "ESC: Back", but other than that no change.
