Well, technically, the QSO that is started on the second radio is a S&P QSO
and is handled by the SearchAndPounce section of the code.  When EES&P is
set to FALSE, this function will not exit with the ESCAPE key.  You could
abort the QSO with SHIFT-TAB I believe.

I could write an exception to escape the S&P routine with ESCAPE, if you are
starting a two radio mode S&P QSO.  This is a bit of a hack and could have 
some unintended consequences, but none that I can see right off.
