Bug Description

It would be nice if the main GUI window released control of the Escape key when a dialog has focus, so a user can quickly tap Esc to mean "Cancel" or whatever the dialog has set for that key. This behavior would be consistent with typical GUI conventions. (Currently, Esc ALWAYS toggles full-screen mode no matter what dialog has focus, which is annoying.)

F11 seems to be a common key for fullscreen, perhaps Mixxx could use that? It might create problems for users not expecting the change but given QT's default seems to be to cancel the open modal dialog on Esc, and that seems like it'd be rather handy if one couldn't easily reach ones mouse (but fumbling for the escape key is fairly easy on most keyboards), the benefits may outweigh the consequences.

Changed full-screen to F11 in trunk and Escape now works as expected, thanks for the suggestion. I had no idea how easy it was to do.
