I've found many similar bug reports. Please, check them.

What Windows version do you use? Does it happen with local or remote instance for you?

I can reproduce the problem with WB on Win7. Create a new server instance entry, but select the wrong OS type (e.g. I created one for localhost but with OS X as OS type). It crashs every time when I try to open it via Manage Security. However it crashes also with all my other entries except one (cannot tell any significant difference, though).

I configured a remote instance of MySQL against a Windows installation. This is where I received the issue (Bug 51520). Attaching a debugger to the process, I found the following exception info. I am looking deeper, but the specific issue appears to be with an attribute called 'strip':

function call error
