Selecting any database from the "Catelogs" will cause program to state "Retrieving Data From MySQL..." and then crashes with the following data:

glibmm-ERROR **:
unhandled exception (type std::exception) in signal handler:
what: attempt to create string with null pointer

How to repeat:
Select any database

this seems to be limited to remote connections not local, without the use of a socket file.

Thank you for your bug report. This issue has already been fixed
in the latest released version of that product, which you can download at 

Additional info:


This bug is most likely fixed in the current release already. We had a bug (ie. segmenation fault) when a database contained tables with "strange" table-names. I assume this was the reason for your crash too.
