both textadept-curses.exe, textadeptjit-curses.exe get a warning.
It wasn't on my machine so I just installed AVG[1] in a VM on my machine
to check -- it's apparently only a heuristic warning for
"Win32/Heur"[2]. Weird.

I re-checked with Avira [3] and there was no warning
Let's hope these warnings aren't too common as they might scare away
people trying out Textadept.
