First: pressing escape always closes dialogs. Even today. It doesn't
close main windows but it always closes dialogs. And the commit dialog
is as the name says a dialog.

Second: While you want the escape key to NOT close the dialog, others
want the escape key to close any TSVN dialog immediately without any
confirmation or anything else even if it would mean getting corrupted
working copies:

So the behavior as it is now will stay for now. Sorry - can't do it
right for everyone.
