tmux being picked up by AVG antivirus?

AVG 2015, auto-updated as of this morning, picked up newly-installed 
tmux as an "Unknown" threat with source "Identity Protection" when I 
tried to run tmux for the first time. I have submitted it to AVG for 
analysis but don't hold out much hope there.

Anyone else seen this? Any idea as to why? I can see by the tmux doc 
(http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/man.cgi/OpenBSD-current/man1/tmux.1?query=tmux&sec=1) 
that it uses a *IX-style socket in /tmp to communicate between client 
and server, I wonder if that is what triggered it?
