I accidentally included single quotations in the "From Host" field when creating a user account.  Now I have a user account with the "From Host" field  = '%'  (notice the literal single quotations).  Whenever I attempt to select this user account in the workbench, to delete/change the account, an unhandled exception occurs and the application crashes.  Of note, I've attempted to delete this account from the cmd line, but a 1396 error (unable to drop user) occurs. The inner exception I get is:

 System.AccessViolationException was unhandled
  Message=Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt.

How to repeat:
Create a user with any username and a "from host" field ='%' .  Then select this user account in the Server Access Management Tab.

Suggested fix:
Include validation in the "From Host" field before users can add accounts with illegal/troublesome formats.

On Mac OS X I get unhandled exception when trying to add use like that. We clearly have a problem here.

Fixed as of 5.2.35:

+        Creating, then selecting or removing user accounts with invalid
+        hosts (such as <literal>'%'</literal>, including the single
+        quotes) resulted in an unhandled exception.
