False Positive with Mcafee gw-edition

I'm developing an application and I use VirusTotal to make sure to avoid false positives. All are good except one which comes from McAfee-GW-Edition (Mcafee entry is OK too) and the virus is: Heuristic.BehavesLike.Win32.Suspicious-BAY.O .

I sent a sample file twice so you can check it and I got an email back saying it was inconclusive and you will let me know what's going on. I never got another email back and the problem presists. How can this be solved already?

What is this gw-edition?
