I wasn't very clear, either.  I tried three ESCs in a row, and all I
got was "ESC ESC" in the minibuffer, and the third one cleared it.

Perhaps your window manager is watching for three ESCs in a row, and
killing whatever window that sequence occurs in?  Sounds unlikely, I
know, but since "emacs -Q" fails, the problem most likely lies
elsewhere.  You might want to check your WM/DE settings to see if
there's a triple-ESC keyboard shortcut somewhere.


Yet creeds mean very little, Coth answered the dark god, still
speaking almost gently.  The optimist proclaims that we live in
the best of all possible worlds; and the pessimist fears this is
true.           -- James Branch Cabell, "The Silver Stallion"
