Got a fatal error after executing the 876 select statement:
"error creating window handle"

How to repeat:
paste 2000 select statements into the sql editor input pane, and start executing them.

Since displaying 800 select resultsets at once is not practical and resource exhaustive, as you noticed,
what would be the expected or desired outcome of such operation, in your opinion?

Let the user determine what is practical by placing a new parameter in the SQL Editor preferences that limits SQL statements to a certain value.  Otherwise, let the user's computer bear the brunt of CPU and/or memory consumption, and not try to make Workbench control the user's intentions.

I've got no problems running 1440+ simple (select 1) queries on this old XP:

MySQL Workbench CE for Windows version 5.2.34
Configuration Directory: C:\Documents and Settings\Satellite\Application Data\MySQL\Workbench
Data Directory: C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Workbench 5.2 CE
Cairo Version: 1.8.8
Rendering Mode: OpenGL is not available on this system, so GDI is used for rendering.
OS: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 (build 2600)
CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor 1.86GHz, 1.0 GiB RAM
Active video adapter: Mobile Intel(R) 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Chipset Family
Installed video RAM: 128 MB
Current video mode: 1280 x 768 x 4294967296 colors
Used bit depth: 32
Driver version:
Installed display drivers: ialmrnt5.dll
Current user language: Ukrainian

so, this may have something to do with newer Windows versions or non-administrator accounts.

Anyway, I think the request to have an option to limit number of output tabs created (to prevent resource-related problems) is reasonable.
