Description:
When trying to setup a connection with MySQL using clear text authentication, connection fails with:

Cannot Connect to Database Server:
Your connection attempt failed for user 'pamuser' from your host at 10.0.0.10:3306: Authentication plugin 'mysql_clear_password' cannot be loaded:

How to repeat:
1. Setup a MySQL user that authenticates to PAM
2. Use the MySQL user credentials when setting up a new connection on Workbench

Fixed as of MySQL Workbench 6.0.1, and here's the changelog entry:

MySQL Workbench would fail to set up a connection with a MySQL user that
authenticated using "PAM".

Thank you for the bug report.
