bookmarks disappear after restarting WinSCP 5.13 (registry permissions issue)

I'm using WinSCP 5.13 under Win10Pro.

I fixed the issue for myself, but figure it's worth it for you to know that there's a lacking error check here.

I could create bookmarks fine, and they worked, and they survived disconnecting/reconnecting. However if i closed WinSCP and reopened/reconnected, they were completely gone.

Using Process Monitor i found that WinSCP was being denied access on keys like:

HKCU\Software\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2\Configuration\Bookmarks\Local\root@109.74.203.4
HKCU\Software\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2\Configuration\Bookmarks\Remote\root@109.74.203.4

While still having full access to these paths:

HKCU\Software\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2\Configuration\Bookmarks\Local
HKCU\Software\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2\Configuration\Bookmarks\Remote

Forcing the permissions to inherit allowed WinSCP to work fine again, however:

It would be good if WinSCP actually did access checks and informed the user, instead of trying to read those and silently failing.
