gvedit menu bar inactive or missing on Mac OSX Catalina
Steps to reproduce
Start gvedit, click File in menu bar.
Expect file open dialog to appear
OSX Catalina 10.15.5
Curiously, the colorful Qt icon for opening a file is alive when gvedit starts. Then, after opening a graph, the Menu Bar changes from "gvedit File Edit Window Graph" to just "gvedit View". Weird.
At least once, I got a popup from the operating system asking to grant gvedit permission to access Documents. After I agreed, the menu bar started to work. I'm certain this happened, but I was not able to reproduce this.
I tried System Preferences->Security & Privacy->Privacy and granting Full Disk Access to gvedit, and even tried, er, sudo gvedit (from a terminal), neither of which made any difference.
