Hello all,

The MySQL Workbench will not start up because of the following error:

The program 'mysql-workbench-bin' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadLength (poly request too large or internal Xlib length erro'.
  (Details: serial 320 error_code 16 request_code 153 minor_code 17)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04, 2.6.32-34-generic. MySQL 5.1.41-3ubuntu12.10

my X server version is: 

X.Org X Server 1.7.6
Release Date: 2010-03-17
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0
Build Operating System: Linux 2.6.24-29-server i686 Ubuntu

How to repeat:
Install ubuntu 10.04 with latest patches, install mysql-workbench-gpl-5.2.35-1ubu1004-i386.deb and try to run. splash screen shows, but nothing else.
