[bisq-network/bisq] Version 1.2.7 not working with system Tor (#3987)

I have bad news and good news.
The bad news is that the issue originally introduced in 1.2.7 is still not fixed. 
The really good news is that I just found a simple workaround for the problem, so simple in fact that I woldn't mind adopting it as standard procedure, as long as it's documented accordingly.

Per the original issue:
`/opt/Bisq-1.2.7/Bisq --logLevel=INFO --torControlPort=9051` fails as described,
`/opt/Bisq-1.2.7/Bisq --logLevel=INFO --torControlPort=9051 --torControlPassword=.` **works well**

So, by **specifying a Tor control password** even though one was not needed (remember we're using onion-grater which manages access control in a different way), Bisq started attempting to connect to the system Tor as intended. 
However, **without a password**, the connection attempt **does not occur.**

Tested and confirmed for versions 1.2.7 and 1.3.4.

On this basis, I think this issue can be changed to lower severity. However, the failure condition still exists, is unexpected and with a non-obvious solution, so I believe some kind of fix is still necessary. 

Changing title for clarity and leaving open for now.
