On setting up a MySQL connection over SSH I wanted to test with an incorrect "SSH Username". Instead of prompting an error such as "User not defined" or an error from the Linux instance, a bug warning appeared:

"We are sorry for the inconvenience but an unexpected exception has been raised by one of the MySQL Workbench modules. In order to fix this issue we would kindly ask you to file a bug report. You can do that by pressing the [Report Bug] button below. 

Please make sure to include a detailed description of your actions that lead to this problem.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to help us improve MySQL Workbench!

The MySQL Workbench Team"

How to repeat:
On any proven Connection Method: Standard TCP/IP over SSH

Configure the SSH Username with an incorrect username (one that does not appear on the Ubuntu or Debian machine OS. 

All other configurations remain the same as on successful connections. 

Suggested fix:
Use the right username.
