If connection to database is lost(perhaps because mysqld dies, or bad or missing internet connection), Control Center exits (crashes). When mysqlcc is rerun, it notes that the previous instance died due to a "Segmentation Fault".

How to repeat:
Open Mysqlcc and connect to a host running the mysqld. In the MySQL Servers pane, Double click a Database for this host (say mysql), double click the "Tables". Single click one of the tables (say user). Stop the mysqld. Double click one of the tables from the stopped mysqld (say user or host). Control Center exits (often the table query window opens for an instant).

Suggested fix:
If no connection to mysqld is found, Control Center should return host to the "unconnected state" in the MySQL Server pane.

Occurs consistently on RedHat 8 and RedHat 9 when connected to remote host via VPN tunnel.

Connection does not need to be completely broken. Occurs on slow or delayed connections as well.
