When I try to connect to my school SSH server I get error:

Could not connect the SSH Tunnel

The authenticity of host '...' can't be established.
Server key fingerprint is
Are you sure you want to continue connecting?

Then when I press Ok it gives me bug report screen that says:
An external component has caused an exception.

How to repeat:
By trying to connect to SSH server again.

Suggested fix:
Get me on that server...

I know you can't replicate it...

I know it has something to do with folder .ssh and file known_hosts

when I install mySql workbench it doesn't create folder and file known_hosts
to C:\users\%USERNAME%\

It should, but it doesn't do it.

I would like to know how to fix this.
