Locking with no password: why? #11214

Please provide the following information

qBittorrent version and Operating System

4.1.7 on macOS 10.14.6

What is the problem

If the lock button on the top toolbar is pressed (with no password set) the UI will still "lock" - asking for a password when attempting to re-open the Qbittorrent window - then opening when [blank] is entered as the password. May be the cause of #5219 where user thought a password was in place that they had never set.

What is the expected behavior

By electing not to set a password a user is effectively opting out of the lock functionality. Perhaps the lock button should do nothing in this case (perhaps throwing up a "functionality disabled as no password is set" notification), rather than "lock" and then prompt for a password that doesn't exist.

Steps to reproduce

Open Qbittorrent (version 4.1.7 on macOS) and click the lock button.

I confirm this in v4.1.7. However it is already fixed in v4.2.0 (upcoming release).
