DeepScreen Exclusion does not work correctly

DeepScreen Exclusion only works if the excluded app is executed directly.

If the app is executed by another process (e.g. by launchers), DeepScreen scans the app again and again.

Once scan is done, the app is no more scanned until reboot. After reboot, DeepScreen scans it again, even if there is an exclusion.

avast! 2014 RC3 / Windows 7

i have the same problem with Diamond editor by CopperSpice.com. i get deepscreen scanning every time i run diamond.exe and it adds a new entry in the settings-antivirus-exceptions-deepscreen each time it runs.

CopperSpice is a C++ library derived from the existing Qt 4.8 framework and make the core design of the libraries, leveraging template functionality and C++11 capabilities.

it kind of seems deepscreen is scanning the exe launcher to the dll framework and once the launcher is done it is forgotten or not considered part of the framework, so each time the exe is launched the dll may hold the handle not the exe, this may be why deepscreen keeps rescanning the exe because it thinks the dll is the main. just a thought.
