On the E325 screen (Found a swap file...), the user can choose 
different keys to press (e.g. [O]pen Read-Only, (E)dit anyway,...). If 
<Esc> is pressed, vim freezes and the terminal session has to be killed.

Reproduce as follows:
1) in one terminal, $ vim a.txt
2) in another terminal, $ vim a.txt
3) vim prompts, warning that there already is a swap file
4) press <Esc> - vim freezes

The same happens in other prompts, e.g. when using ctags, do ":tj 
<identifier>" on an ambiguous tag (i.e. an identifier that is defined 
in multiple places, like :tj main), so vim shows you all the places 
where the tag is defined. You are prompted to choose which one to 
open. Press <Esc> - vim freezes.
