Disclaimer: Not sure if reported for the correct product/component. Sorry then.

I tried to compile my a with the dev-snashot version, but my company proxy server reported

Notification: Malware found
Rulename: Block If Virus was Found (McAfee Agressive)

I know this is a false positive (I double checked with other anti virus scanners), but is it possible to avoid this? The version RELEASE082 of the lib was not seen as containing a virus.

But there was no change in editor.errorstripe for 8.1. It is same as it was in 8.0.2 only there was increase in spec version.
