Description:
Placing "-" into the query execution box crashes MySQL Query Browser. This is really annoying since the - key and the = key are right next to eachother, so if you make a typo, instead of equals, you put the minus sign, if you are in the middle of a long query, and accidently do that, you will lose your data, cause the browser will crash. 

How to repeat:
Put "-" into the execution text box, it will crash MySQL Query Browser. 

Suggested fix:
Allow "-" into the text box. The equal sign and the - character are right next to eachother, so, with a typo, the browser will crash.
