Lockpicking XP

As of v1.9, the XP formula matches vanilla exactly. Thanks to Warhorse developer Bart.

XP = RPG.LockPickingSuccessXPMulCoef * (lockDiff + 1) / (RPG.LockPickingSuccessXPDivCoef * skillLvl + 1)

In addition, Stealth XP is rewarded for picking locks, derived from RPG.LockPickingStealthXP.

Remember Searched

When stashes are opened, they are marked as searched in the UI.
