When I try to open a second instance of Work bench, I get an error saying that 

Cannot open document ‘C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL…
can’t open XML file c:\Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\MYSQL\Workbench/

Then when I close the error box, the instance I have opened already opens a MySQL Model Window.

How to repeat:
Get into Workbench, then attempt to open another instance or Workbench.

verified by starting WB and launch another instance (using the startmenu or any other way of launching WB without explicitly loading a new document)

it's related to changes that also raised Bug# 59400, but its not a duplicate.
