Actually, what happens with ESC + a is that after the 'a' is received
it is dropped (because it's not the second char of a recognized sequence),
and the ESC ends up being passed on.  ESC is mapped to lynxactioncode 0 in
LYKeymap.c, i.e. "unrecognized".  The statusline rewrite is the major
difference between an unrecognized and a DO_NOTHING key.

Again, this doesn't apply to all libraries.
