Bug Description

To reproduce:

1. Click the "place global label" button on the right sidebar. The global label button will not be selected, while the "place net label" button will be highlighted.

2. Type in any random label name and press enter. The actual label created will simply be a net label.

3. Press Esc (to cancel the "place net label" operation). eeschema will segfault.

If you press escape several times while the "place net label" dialog is still open, i.e. step 1, the "place net label" tool will remain active even though the "select item" tool is highlighted. This happens with several other tools.

If you click on the cursor tool, it does behave correctly, but the "escape to exit tool" functionality does not work before you do that. The cursor tool is misleadingly highlighted even though the previous tool is still active.

Indeed, the <esc> key is still broken (although the context menu "End Tool" item works). I'll dig into it....

<esc> issue should be fixed now too.

I'd say the Esc issue is fixed, but it's only working in the sense that the tool is no longer reactivated. The select tool is now broken: https://bugs.launchpad.net/kicad/+bug/1825613
