At the moment, when you click the refresh icon, nothing happens. The first time I clicked the icon, I thought nothing was happening. Do I hit the icon? Had the window focus and I clicked the icon or did I focus the window? Was my tapping on my touchpad even realized? These question come up and I clicked the icon like 3 or 4 times more (which ended in an unhandled excpetion: http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=61892).

The only visual feedback are the blinking icons of the tables in the overview tab in the right lower panel. That's the only visual that the operation has finished - that's obviously too late.

How to repeat:
Click the refresh icon nothing happens. 

Suggested fix:
Spin the refresh icon and stop spinning when the operation has finished.
