I am really confused. I´ve   n e v e r  wrote that Intego Antivirus reported a false positive. 
First of all, Intego´s realtime scanner  scans a file once the system, an application or the user (thru the Finder) opens, modifies or saves that file.
Here it seems LiveCode application is constantly accessing the file " ~/Library/Logs/RunRev/LiveCodeToolsLog.txt. That's why the Real-Time Scanner is constantly checking it too. Every second at least.
In my case it helped moving that file to the trusted items, so Intego Antivirus will ignore that file completely.
Even deleting the file would help. LC is then creating a new file, but the file grows continuously with every start of every LC version (6,7 and 8).
