I had those with Avast many times and, indeed, I reported the false 
positives... But I guess it's not easy for the AV people to take into 
account such reports: after all, a virus maker could report their own 
maleware as a false positive in order not to be detected!
Best workaround: declare your own concoctions as exceptions for the AV 
not to scan.

Best for 2017 to you all!
