Unable to open documents (MacOS 10.15 Catalina / Inkscape beta 1)
Testing with a fresh copy of Inkscape 1.0beta1 (32d48128, 2019-09-19) installed on macOS 10.15 Catalina (release version), I am unable to open documents with File > Open or the toolbar shortcut. (I did not encounter this issue on pre-release versions of Catalina.)
For any directory that I navigate to, I get a message "Could not read the contents of XXXXX". "Error opening directory 'path/to/directory`: Operation not permitted"
I can open an SVG file by double clicking it in the Finder if Inkscape is not already open.
Same issue reported for GIMP: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/issues/3710

- Inkscape works without launch script (my personal dev environment)
- test CLI invocation (because of problems with the launch script)
- symlinked from somewhere else
- do some cleanup and testing
- finalize the XDG situation (check the spec)
