Has anyone else had this problem? I'm learning to use OpenAL, and, of course, I don't always release all the resources properly. (Unfreed buffer or source or whatever). Well, sometimes (not all the time) I run my app, when I close it AVG pops up wanting to quarantine my program. It doesn't give a specific name of a virus or anything it just says it has detected this program MAY be a threat. Once I exclude my own .exe file from runtime detection, I have no problem until I turn off/ reboot the computer.

Is AVG's 'heuristics' just overly aggressive in trying to determine what's a threat or not?

I'm using the latest OpenAL directly from Creative Lab's website, and their (properly written) sample apps don't have this problem. I guess it'll teach me to release all my buffers!
