When Avast's sandbox warning comes up, once "continue execution" is
selected, Claws will run normally without that warning coming up
again.  But there appears to be something about 3.9.0 that Avast does
not like.  This wasn't an issue with the previous Windows CVS version
(3.8.something) that was available on the Claws web site.

Just wanted to pass it along.
