Follow-up from Bug 671422.

We want to ensure that shortly after launch, Sync will prompt for master password (if enabled). If canceled, subsequent syncs do not attempt any action that would cause a prompt. Automated tests for this are needed.

Clarifying IRC discussion:

15:51:51 <@philikon> scheduled syncs should *not* trigger MP, right?
15:51:59 <@rnewman> correct
15:52:08 <@rnewman> and they avoid that by checking whether it's locked
15:52:12 <@philikon> right
15:52:12 <@rnewman> prior to accessing
15:52:15 <@philikon> right
15:52:31 <@rnewman> so we don't want to test that we don't sync per se; we want to test that we don't even begin to try
15:52:58 <@rnewman> because even if we don't successfully sync, we could still throw up a dialog
15:53:06 <@rnewman> what we're testing is not sync events, it's mp accesses
