I just downloaded the .zip file from github and Security Essentials did indeed immediately find it bad, very bad (naturally, the most innocent file, smlrc.exe is sad to have Trojan:Win32/Tiggre!rfn). And it wouldn't let me get the file out of quarantine (bug?).
But there's no problem if the contents of the .zip file are sitting unpacked on the disk. Manually directing Security Essentials to scan my github directory yields nothing. Go figure.
