This documentation,
, has some discussion about what's implicitly allowed for access in ~/Documents and what will trigger a user prompt. The Info.plist key that's described there is listed as optional so I doubt that its absence in Angband's Info.plist is causing the problem. The console messages could indicate which file access is getting blocked (i.e. whether it's writing the *.new version or the renaming) and why a user prompt to allow access doesn't appear. I haven't installed Catalina so that's all the possibly useful information I have.
