If you want to find out where ^] has gone to on the console, you can
dumpkeys -f | grep -i control_bracketright
The (very long) lines that match will start with:
keycode <N> = <X> ...
where N is the number of the key if you wish to redefine it or add to
its definition, and X is the unshifted key which will normally
correspond to the engraving on that key.

Fair enough. I see the same effect in iceweasel; very useful, but not
much to do with escaping from machinectl.
