In Mac OS, Option-Delete deletes the entire word to the left of the current cursor. While editing an SQL query in MySQL Workbench, this key combination instead funcitons as Undo.

How to repeat:
Connect to a database. In the SQL editor:

Type "A"
Hit enter twice
Type "B"
use the up arrow to move to the empty line
Type "C"
Move the cursor to the right of "B"
Type Option-Delete

Expected behavior: B (the word to the left of the cursor) is deleted
Actual behavior: C (the most recent change) is deleted

Noted in 5.2.34 changelog.

On Mac OS X, Option+Delete functioned as Undo rather than deleting
the word to the left of the cursor.
