On a Mac, you can't click a file to open it. It is some weird interaction
between how MacOS and GC (a linux program ported to work on Mac) see the
GC on Mac will *always* try to open the most recently used file. If that file
has gone away, then it will complain that the file is not found.
Ignore that message, then use the File->Open menu to get to the file you want.
Next time you start GC, it should remember that file choice and open it
automatically for you.
