There's not much you can do besides configure your McAffee scanner to
not interfere.

What has changed in the svn library is that newer versions do more with
the files inside the .svn folders (and the working copy files too). For
example, the permissions on the files are now set explicitely. I guess
that's what your virus scanner interprets as "bad" and interferes. But
that's not really bad but required.

But that's why you can configure a virus scanner to exclude certain
locations - use that feature of your scanner, because that's what it is
there for.

There is no way that Subversion would change the way it treats its *own*
files just because of a virus scanner.
