After fixing application behaves as follows :
1. If user press 'cancel button' continuously three times on 'card present' screen then the transaction should be cancelled because HPA application handles unsolicited response only for three occurrences.
2. If user press 'cancel button' continuously three times on any other screen, then application takes action of cancel button.
