Feature requests

When I use fullscreen mode in Terminal (after pressing alt-enter), the escape key exits fullscreen mode. This is particularly annoying if I am in vi, where escape is used a lot.

Here is what I've changed in /usr/lib/python25/site-packages/sugar/graphics/window.py to get this working:

<             self.props.enable_fullscreen_mode:
>             self.props.enable_fullscreen_mode and \
>             self.get_title() != 'Terminal Activity':
