After selecting Tools->Configuration->Restore Connections... and choosing the backup file from the mac, Workbench shows the error:

"Error during "Restore connections from a backup file"
error calling Python module function PyWbUtils.restoreConnections

How to repeat:
1. Create some connections (also in subfolders) in MySQL Workbench 8.0.24 on a Mac
2. Use Tools->Configuration->Backup Connections... to export the file
3. Copy the file to a Windows 10 Installation of MySQL Workbench 8.0.24
4. Use Tools->Configuration->Backup Connections...
5. Choose the backup file from step 2/3
6. Observe error message

The BUG is still there in Version 8.0.25 of MySQL Workbench. Both Backup and Restore connections functionality is not working on Windows Pro and Enterprise 64bit.
