This has been raised multiple times now. It's only a configuration
option: just set `evil-intercept-esc` to 'always.

I didn't realise that so many people really use C-[ (this would be a
nightmare on German keyboards, so sorry for being so ignorant in this

Anyway, because of these multiple requests I've just changed the
default value of `evil-intercept-esc` to 'always. Just update to the
latest revision and everything should work.

Let's hope this does not cause other problems ... but I least there
should be enough people testing this, now ;)

Best regards,
