Re bug 68101
Load VE. Say "Foobar" is the first word on the page.
If you click on the link tool, by mistake or not, without selecting anything before, Foobar will automatically become a link to the Foobar page (it doesn't help that pressing ESC doesn't abort the action, the link gets applied anyway, as we know).
ESC _should not_ exit and save; it should either exit without saving, or revert the change (in this case, the link) without exiting. I was going to set the Severity to "blocker", as it would block installation on en.Wikipedia, but that would be wrong.
