Master Password Bug on Xshell 5

 
Hello,

I have set a Master Password for Xshell 5 (Build 0446) and upon password prompt while starting Xshell, if I choose "Cancel" rather than entering the password, the software starts up which it shouldn't as I did not enter password. So, this has rendered the "Master-Password -Setting" feature useless.

Master password is used to encrypt password and passphrase. This adds extra layer of security for your session files.

This feature is not intended to block people from using the software. This feature prevents unwanted users from stealing your passwords/passphrases.
