I understand. I've looked into this and it appears to not be configurable.
From the ncurses man page:

"When a character that could be the beginning of a function key is
received (which, on modern terminals, means an escape character), curses
sets a timer. If the remainder of the sequence does not come in within
the designated time, the character is passed through; otherwise, the
function key value is returned. For this reason, many terminals
experience a delay between the time a user presses the escape key and the
escape is returned to the program."
