Importing a previous exported database model (in SQL format) in the model designer result in two models in the catalog tree, the one loaded and the default mydb. The later must be removed.

How to repeat:
1. You need to have a previously created database model in slq format. Any simple moled is adequate. Just give it a name different than the default "mydb".
2. Start Wotkbench and create a new ERR model
3. Select File > Import > Reverse Engineer MySQL Create Script...
4. Press the Browse button and select the model described in step 1.
5. Check the 'Place imported objects on a diagram" checkbox and press the Execute button.
6. You end up with two databases in the Catalog Tree. The one loaded and the usual "mydb".

Thank you for the bug report. Verified as described having as work-around to delete the mydb schema.

This is not a bug, importing an external schema into a model, should not automatically DROP existing schemas from the model.

How am I supposed then to switch between the two models in the graphical editor?
