Rewriting lore.txt fails in macOS Catalina

"Getting a strange failure with the new version of MacOS Catalina. Create a new game, set my birth options to randarts, first trip down to the dungeon when it tries to save it says:

Failed to create file /Users/mrfy/Documents/Angband/window.prf.new
Failed to create file /Users/mrfy/Documents/Angband/lore.prf.new
lore save failed!

Quitting causes the cursor to spin for a bit and then the game quits suddenly with the dialog that "Angband quit unexpectedly"

If I create a character and immediately hit save when the town appears, it works fine, can go up and down the stairs repeatedly. But when I try to change the prefs, like to turn sound on, and try to save, then I get those failed to create file messages. So it seems like a bug with saving the changed preferences.

Looks like it only triggers by turning sounds on, or setting randarts on. If I change other game prefs it is still works fine." - mrfy

"OK, my current guess (and it is only that) is that Catalina doesn't like writing, for example, lore.txt.new when it already has a lore.txt." - me
