Select distinct does eliminate the duplicate.

How to repeat:
Find a table with a lot of rows with the same data in one column.
Do "select distinct column_name from table_name"
All rows will be returned. Duplicates exists.

The same query works as expected in MySQL ControlCenter 0.9.4beta.
Using other query tool returns expected result.

Suggested fix:
Remove duplicate (only distinct) rows.
