Yes, version 1.4.0 has a new working copy format. 1.3.x used xml for the
working copy metadata, which I guess made McAfee just ignore those
files. But the current version uses another format (which is faster than
xml, but not quite readable text anymore). So McAfee seems to think that
these files could be dangerous and checks them much more intensive.

Sorry, but there's nothing we can do about that. I hope that McAfee has
some option to ignore certain directories from scanning? If not,
complain with McAfee.
