When using vim in gnome-terminal there is a 1s delay after pressing <Esc> to go back to normal mode.

I tried Google and found ttimeoutlen. I tried setting it to 100 with no effect (delay is still that of timeoutlen).

I am using latest Vim on Ubuntu 12.10

Do you have any mappings that start with <esc>? (Run this command within vim):

:imap <esc>

Does it still happen when you start Vim without any initialization files? (Run this on a shell command line):

vim -u NONE -U NONE --noplugin -N
