There is an option in WB which is unclear:

Title:  "Use new routines"
Description:  "Use very new possible `unsafe` functions."

This appears to set the "new" property (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/server-system-variables.html#sysvar_new), but neither the title nor description correspond to the documentation.

Not only that, but the documentation indicates it is not for 5.1.

How to repeat:
Set "Use new routines", confirm changes, view documentation.

Suggested fix:
Correct title and description, if it is to be left in WB.

This option has been removed from the configuration section.
