Editor question on large file treats escape as Yes

When a cursor in midnight commander is at a large file (say 80MB) and I press F4 to edit the file, a dialog appears with question: "File XYZ is too large. Open it anyway?". Presented options are Yes or No. If I choose Yes, the file opens in editor. If I choose No, the editor doesn't open. This is correct so far.

But if I hit Esc key (twice) instead of selecting yes or no, it opens the file anyway in editor as like if I was choosing Yes. This is unexpected. I am expecting that Esc key will behave as if I am choosing No - I am expecting the dialog to disappear as if No was selected, and I am expecting the editor not to be started.
