Trying to open a new connection with an already open connection result in error 61:

Your connection attempt failed for user 'root' from your host to server at
  Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial communication packet', system error: 61

How to repeat:
Open a connection. Then try to open another connection.

Are you trying to connect to the same server (local/remote ?) using the same saved connection?. Thanks.

I have a connection open to a remote server.
I want to open another connection, this time to a local server.
And viceversa.

Looks like a duplicate of Bug #61331. Please, check.

Yes, it's a duplicate.

On happens all the time. If I want to query a database, I have to quit Workbench and load it again.
