[bisq-network/bisq] Application dies shortly after launch while attempting to connect with Tor with error "Auth cookie not created" (#2398)

When launching Bisq on my Windows 10 VM, it dies several seconds later and doesn't get past this on the splash screen:

In the log:
`Feb-08 10:59:37.065 [NetworkNode-9999] ERROR b.n.p.n.TorNetworkNode: Could not connect to running Tor: java.io.IOException: Auth cookie not created`

I am consistently encountering it on my VM, but not on my primary Windows 10 machine. I have investigated/eliminated possible causes such as firewall, antivirus, file permissions and as of yet been unable to determine the root cause.

I see it is creating an empty tor/.tor/control_auth_cookie file, but not writing to it. While looking at the netlayer module, it throws this exception if the file is not written to within 3 seconds.

At this point the only thing I can think of is it perhaps could be a timing issue with my VM running slower than my primary machine and it taking longer than 3 seconds to write to this file. But I am not familiar with the netlayer module nor with tor in general.
