Tried conencting with IP address set to for a connection (which forwards over ssh). If set to localhost, no issues.

How to repeat:
Set hostname to 
Change it to localhost to resolve.

I couldn't repeat on Vista Home Premium 64-bit.

I went back and retried it by changing back to - this time no popo-up error.
This was a new install. Maybe only on startup the first time? I cannot reproduce it anymore.
We can close it.

I saw this again. Thsi tiem the first time I accessed 'Edit table'. I am attaching the image for the error message. Starnge thing is that it accessed the table already! After I close the error, I can see 'fetching...' on the Object Browser (right). Image also attached.

Marking this as a duplicate of bug #52648 (Workbench OverviewBE::get_node:invalid node 0.0.0).

The "fetching" issue is another problem, which likely indicates you forgot to run mysql_upgrade after upgrading from an earlier release. Please check and let us know.

We usually run mysql_upgrade as a standard practice after install. Not sure how I can tell if it has been run?

If you're using a recent version of MySQL, just run it again (please take precautions like stopping your application traffic, taking a backup etc.). What does it say?

Looking for 'mysql.exe' as: C:\mysql\bin\mysql.exe
Looking for 'mysqlcheck.exe' as: C:\mysql\bin\mysqlcheck.exe
This installation of MySQL is already upgraded to 5.1.49, use --force if you still need to run mysql_upgrade

Thanks. Our DB is on Linux and looks like it already has been updated to a newer release since I reported this. Our admins say they always run this. (They are not sure if on Linux it reports that 'it has been run before' and they don't want to rerun it in case it causes issues ..).
