Description:
Connected to MySQL 4.0.77 Trying to reverse engineer db into workbench.  Everything works until I get to the last step Reverse Engineering Progress (Reverse Engineer)  Just before we see the results.

Workbench just dies.  Not graceful saying there is a problem.  It just closes.

The database I'm working on is large 66 tables, Innodb, many foreign keys, 12 views.

How to repeat:
Select Database
Select Reverse Engineer

Follow through the steps

My guess is that the model is becoming too large, I am able to reverse engineer less complex db structures.

Thank you for the problem report. Please, send .sql file to create problematic database (you can use mysqldump --no-data to create it).

I couldn't repeat in Windows Vista 64-bit using the dump file provided and a MySQL server 5.1.37 source distribution.

This was running on Windows XP Pro 32 bit.

Many thanks for writing a bug report.

MySQL server 4.0 is not supported any more.

Please try to use an actual server (5.0 or 5.1) here.
