Cancelling selection in the console?

If I've selected text in the command line with Shift-..., how do I cancel the selection? In CMD, one Esc cancels the selection, another erases the command line.
 
Shift-Esc cancels the selection on my system.

Then, pressing Esc erases the command line.

Shift-Esc cancels the selection (only) if I selected with the mouse. It does nothing if I selected with the keyboard.
