The explain query function in the GUI (weather the toolbar button or the menu item) doesn't do anything. It is not grayed out or anything, it just doesn't do anything when clicked. If I manually add EXPLAIN keyword to the query and click execute it works.

How to repeat:
1. Open connection to a MySQL server
2. Enter a query
3. Click "Explain Query" button

Thank you for the bug report. I was not able to repeat the behavior
reported on FC 6.0. I attached a screenshot showing the explain
query screen.

I have repeated the experiment by deleting my .mysqlgui directory, connecting to the local MySQL server via socket and doing the same exact query you have on your screenshot. No explain window. I clicked the menu (no button in that view mode) 10 times without any results.
