I just tried

%> kate &
%> killall -SEGV kate

My Plasma4 desktop shows an alert with a "Report bug" button that does nothing. 1 click on the beetle icon in the systray, and then hit Escape and DrKonqi exits. On a non-Plasma desktop DrKonqi will appear, and still exits when I hit Escape. So that's at most 1 click.

It's possible that you have a later version which reacts differently to Escape (mine is built from git master of Dec. 6th 2018). Easy to check by hitting Escape in your step 3. If that also closes it's quicker & easier than clicking 'Close' (less eye-hand co-ordination required) ;)
