Thanks Albrecht for taking the time to reproduce in your hands. I was beginning
to envisage my M1 had some defect in its security processor.

All that crazy stuff goes into the direction of preventing macOS users from using non-Apple software.
Very sad.

But there's a command to remove that
      xattr -d -r   /path/to/app

I found it there:
and it works.

I'll see if I can add that to the test/ makefile.

Thanks for that, that's awesome. Howeve it doesn't resolve the underlying issue, it's more like "healing the symptoms".

If you can get it working, can you please post a patch here before you commit it so I can test and we can decide this shortly? If my long-term solution (see below) doesn't work out quick enough we can use yours as a quick fix in 1.3.6.

BTW: fluid is also concerned.

My long term solution ("plan B") would be to create the app folders for all apps "from scratch", just as we do with all the other apps and then copy the extry files (icon and others) into the app folder in a second step.

I'm working on this solution and I'll let you know how this works out. This should avoid the issue in the first place and IMHO have another benefit: I moved the "extra files" to a separate folder "resources" and intend to copy the files from there into the .app folder. The benefit is that this extra folder removes some special handling of '.app' folders in 'git' and 'make clean': since we won't have *any* .app folders in our sources we can have '*.app' in .gitignore and 'rm -rf *.app' in `make clean'.

Here's a potential layout (work in progress):
