Motif and GTK does pop down on ESC.

Does that mean that Gtk treats ESC specially?  That seems a bit
unfortunate, though I suppose it's not a big deal if it's only when a
menu is dropped down.

It is special.  How is that unfortunate?  It only happens when a menu
or dialog has the input focus.

And if you have some window manager,
there usualy are some "kill window" button on the title bar.

The dialogue box doesn't have WM decoration, so you can't get rid of
it that way.

It is WM dependent.  My WM (fvwm) decorates them.

GTK is very inefficient for Emacs dynamic menus.

Ah, I didn't realize that popups were special, if that's what it
means.  Thanks for the explanation.  This probably deserves a mention
in PROBLEMS or somewhere else.

Actually I was talking about the menu bar menus. Popup menus are recreated
every time they are used, so they are even slower.  Some sort of caching
could fix that, but I am not sure it is worth the effort (murphys law
and all that).
