The SQL editor renders fonts poorly.  Warnings are spit to the shell when accessing an area of the Workbench that uses these fonts.

Shell messages:

The font "-*-Bitstream Vera Sans Mono-medium-r-*-*-*-110-*-*-*-*-iso10646-1,-*-*-medium-r-*-*-*-110-*-*-*-*-iso8859-*" does not support all the required character sets for the current locale "en_US.utf8"
  (Missing character set "ISO8859-7")
  (Missing character set "ISO8859-13")
  (Missing character set "ISO8859-14")
  (Missing character set "JISX0208.1983-0")
  (Missing character set "KSC5601.1987-0")
  (Missing character set "GB2312.1980-0")
  (Missing character set "JISX0201.1976-0")


(mysql-workbench-bin:19752): Gtk-CRITICAL **: IA__gtk_container_remove: assertion `GTK_IS_TOOLBAR (container) || widget->parent == GTK_WIDGET (container)' failed

My system is up-to-date with the Fedora repositories as of 12/03/2010 @ 5:30 PM.

How to repeat:
Start MySQL Workbench and open its SQL editor.

as a workaround you can change the font used in script-editor in WB preferences
[7 Dec 2010 16:44] D C
Aye.  I read somewhere that you can remove the font name completely in the preferences and it will render much better.  I did this and I can read it much better.

This has been fixed. As a workaround, leave the editor font setting empty or prepend the font name with a ! character.

This is actually a duplicate of bug #54059
