How would I cancel a password auto type (initiated by Ctrl + Alt + A) after Keepass begins typing?
I've tried pressing Esc repeatedly, but to no avail

I don't know a good way to cancel auto-type. I don't think there is one. At least I didn't find anything in the options.
Even with the options below, there is no elegant way to break out of a currently running auto-type.
Assuming you are on windows: The only thing that worked for my was to immediately lock the workstation with Win+L.
Auto-type is a bit a of a foot gun for me.
You can set these options to make it a bit safer:
If you want avoid typing and sending your passwords into the wrong window you could also try to remove the final ENTER key from the auto-type sequence.
That will make it less comfortable. You will have to press Enter manually before you can actually log in. But it may also give you another chance to not post the password somewhere it doesn't belong.
