Description of problem:
When pressing Escape key in dialog window during instalation, Anaconda interprets this key as confirmation of selected choice (changes made in dialog window are saved, it depends on dialog window).
This is dangerous on "Writing storage configuration to disk" dialog window, where pressing Escape key = pressing button "Write changes to disk"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start instalation using rawhide-20090827
2. proceed to the first partitioning screen
3. select "Advanced storage configuration"
4. in the "Advance Storage Options" dialog press Escape key
Dialog "Configure FCoE Parameters" is shown
"Advance Storage Options" dialog window disappears (the same effect as clicking on the Cancel button)

This should be fixed (hopefully for all dialogues) in version 12.25 of anaconda.
There are still some dialog windows not fixed in anaconda-12.26-1:
Edit Logical Volume
Edit LVM Volume Group
Make Logical Volume
Make RAID Device
Edit RAID Device
And some more dialogs in boot loader configuration need to be fixed:
Enter Boot Loader Password
Add end Edit items in "Boot loader operating system list"
Thanks for pointing me to another group of dialogs, all those you have mentioned in comments #2 and #3 should be fixed in anaconda 12.27.
Verified with rawhide-20090929, anaconda-12.31, x86_64 arch in kvm.
