In that case, I really wonder what's going on.
Can you give me the output of
ls -le@ Squeak6.0-22101-64bit-All-in-One.app/Contents/MacOS/Squeak
xattr -l Squeak6.0-22101-64bit-All-in-One.app/Contents/MacOS/Squeak
xattr -l $PATH_OF_THE_DOWNLOADED_THING

you should not, if you moved stuff, macOS should have disabled translocation -.-
Lapcatsoftware has old info:
Here's someone avoiding translocation via some exploit, hence not recommendable:
Forum says signing the dmg or bundle helps (https://developer.apple.com/forums/thread/133743):
>Another solution is to sign the .dmg file too, that should avoid app translocation if I remember correctly.
We probably have to be tighter in stuff, I just found a "howto":
- https://developer.apple.com/forums/thread/701514#701514021 (for signing or so…)
:( yay more work.
