This was already fixed in two ways.
After the first couple of versions of 3.6. RIM changed it so you have to click and hold the ESC button for a significant period of time to end a call.
It was only really a problem on the original 7230's - they moved the button slightly on the 7290 series (it is more to the back of the device) so it is harder to accidently have your finger over the ESC key. I haven't heard of this issue since it was solved in the 7230 quite some time ago.
I haven't had a user bring this issue up for at least a year, probably longer.
