Query Browser will not let me edit or add rows to a table with the word "join" in the name.

There are two possible workarounds I can think of:

A) Rollback to a previous version of Query Browser (1.2.9 and 1.2.2 work).

B) Change the table name, add/edit, and change the name back.

How to repeat:
1) Create a table like the following:
DROP TABLE IF EXISTS `temp`.`ajoinb`;
CREATE TABLE  `temp`.`ajoinb` (
  `ID` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL auto_increment,

2) Select all rows from the table:
SELECT * FROM ajoinb a;

3) Try to add a row through the interface, however this is the point where the typical interface GUI to do so (a grey row below the last row) is not present.

4) Change the name of the table by removing one of the four letters 'j', 'o', 'i',  or 'n' from the name.  For example, 'ajoib'.

5) Reselect rows from the renamed table
SELECT * FROM ajoib a;

6) Add and edit row functionality is now available.

Suggested fix:
Allow editing of tables with the word "join" in the name.

There is an easier 'workaround'.
If you set the tablename in ` everyting works fine.

Example: SELECT * FROM `ajoinb` a
