Please, check if the same problem happens with a newer version, 5.2.33b.

Please also tell whether your connection name has any non-alphanumeric/space characters.

The problem preside in version 5.2.33b.
The connection name does contain non-alphanumeric/space characters.

The default schema might left unset to reproduce the problem.
If I specify a database name in the connection manager, can work in some cases.

I'm having the same problem.  Everytime I try to do a query I get an error window that pops up and says, "External component has thrown an exception".  I'm running  MySQL Workbench 5.2 CE.

Is there a fix for his issue?

Can you try a 5.2.34-pre1 TEST binary from ftp://ftp.mysql.com/pub/mysql/download/gui-tools/snapshot/  and report if that problem is solved?
