The Object (Table, Routine, etc.) editors opened in the MySQL Model view stay visible in other views (SQL Editor, Home, etc.).

This is a problem, because it's not obvious what you're editing when in the SQL Editor view, where it's also possible to edit/alter tables.

How to repeat:
1) Edit a table in a MySQL Model
2) Switch to the Home view, an SQL Editor view, etc.
3) Note that the Table editor pane at the bottom of the screen persists

Suggested fix:
The Object editors should be hidden when the user switches away from the MySQL Model or EER Diagram views.

This has been fixed in 5.2.17 as a result of the recent UI layout changes.

An entry has been added to the 5.2.17 changelog:

The Table Editor, Routine Editor, and other object editors stayed open, even if the user switched from the MySQL Model page to the SQL Editor page, Home screen, or Administrator page, thereby causing confusion.
