[Vim-vms] vim hanging upon Esc

I am using the console vim on VMS on Alpha. Please see below for version info.

My vim hangs when I do the following:
1. execute an Ex command (e.g. :maps or :autocmd) that produces much
output -- so much that it is split into several pages, and the user is
prompted with "-- More --" after each page of output,
2. instead of Enter or Space (which would show more), press Esc -> vim freezes

I cannot reproduce this in my Windows vim, so I think it could be a bug...

Can anyone else reproduce this?
